Happy national white wine day to all my fellow wine lovers out there! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this year than by making some delicious white wine cocktails for me and my friends.
There’s an endless array of things to do with white wine, but my favorites are sangria and spritzers. They’re so bright and flavorful and delicious, I just love them!
Of course, white wine is great by itself, too. But it’s national wine day, so let’s have some fun with it and get creative!
Check out the delicious recipes below and celebrate wine day with us!
Mint Citrus White Wine Sangria
- 1 bottle white wine* (pinot grigio // other options would be a dry riesling, sauvignon blanc, or cava for a sparkling option)
- 1 medium lemon (thinly sliced)
- 1 medium lime (thinly sliced)
- 8-10 mint leaves
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 2 Tbsp water
Prepare simple syrup by mixing sugar and water in a small dish and microwaving for 30-second increments until sugar is dissolved. Alternatively, prepare a large batch on the stovetop using a 1:1 sugar-water ratio and reserve for later use.
Once simple syrup is ready, add 1 Tablespoon to each wine glass. Then add mint leaves and stir/lightly muddle. Next add several slices each of lemon and lime.
Top off with wine and let set for a few minutes so the flavors can meld together. Top off with more wine and citrus as needed.
Strawberry White Wine Spritzer
- 3 ounces Sauvignon Blanc
- 1 ounce vodka
- 3 fresh strawberries (stems removed)
- 1 Tablespoons agave nectar
- Juice of ¼ lemon
- 1 1/2 ounces soda water
In the bottom of a mixing glass, muddle the strawberries in the lemon and agave nectar.
Add Sauvignon Blanc and vodka and shake well with ice.
Strain over ice into a wine glass and top with soda water.
