Crisp, sweet, and zesty, white wine cocktails are a great way to celebrate the summer. In fact, the addition of a little white wine into classic cocktail recipes is a great way to enjoy some old favourites in a new and exciting way. Here are three of our favourite white wine cocktail recipes.
This wine infused spin on the classic martini is a wonderfully sophisticated way to enjoy a white wine cocktail.
- 1 oz Moscato white wine
- 1 oz vodka
- Lemon twist
Combine the Moscato and vodka in a cocktail shaker with some ice. Stir to combine. Strain the mixture into a martini glass and serve with a lemon twist.
If you’re a fan of tropical-themed cocktails, the stargazer is worth a try. This sweet and refreshing cocktail combines rum, tropical fruit, and your favorite white wine. You can use any white wine you fancy, but we recommend Chardonnay. The vanilla notes in the Chardonnay will really bring out the softer notes of the cocktail.
- 2 oz white wine
- 1 oz dark rum
- 1 tbsp vanilla syrup
- 1 oz fresh pineapple juice
- Lime or pineapple wedges
Combine the wine, rum, vanilla, and pineapple in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake. Strain the drink into a highball glass. Garnish with the lime wedge.
