Wine Cocktails With A Wow Factor

White Wine Cocktails

White wine can be used in some interesting cocktails and spritzers – here are three of WineDom’s favorites.

    1. Caipirinha: You can make the base drink that inspired #3 above in just a few minutes.

2 teaspoons granulated sugar
4 Key limes, halved and seeded, or 2 small, juicy limes, quartered
2 ounces cachaca

      • Sprinkle the sugar over the limes, and muddle them in the glass part of a martini shaker until the sugar is dissolved and the lime juice is released.
      • Pour an old-fashioned glassful of cracked ice into the mixing glass, add the cachaca, and shake to incorporate.
      • Strain into preferred glass over ice.
      1. Crimean Cocktail:

2 ounces dry white wine
1 ounce orange liqueur, such as Cointreau
1 ounce soda water
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice

Combine everything but the ice in a cocktail shaker and give a few good shakes.  Pour over ice in your glass of choice.

      1. Raspberry Cocktail:  Don’t let the abundance of fresh berries fool you, this drink has the strength of gin to keep the flavor intense and not too fruity.

1 cup fresh raspberries, plus 6 additional raspberries for garnish
6 ounces gin
8 ounces dry white wine
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1/2 ounce Kirsch
8 ice cubes

      • Lightly mash a cup of the raspberries in a bowl. Pour in the gin and let macerate at room temperature for two hours.
      • Place the raspberries and gin in a blender and blend until smooth, about 20 seconds. Place a fine-mesh strainer over a medium bowl and strain the mixture. Discard the solids.
      • Rinse the blender and add the raspberry mixture, wine, lime juice, simple syrup, Kirsch, and ice cubes. Blend until the ice is crushed, about 10 seconds.
      • Pour into 6 cocktail glasses and add a fresh raspberry to each glass.
