Red Red 'Vine' Cocktail - Recipes

As the weather gets cooler, it’s the perfect time for cozy drinks with friends and family. When you think of hot drinks, most people go immediately to cider or hot chocolate. But for wine lovers, this is the perfect season for hot red wine cocktails!

Check out my recommendations for a creative, classy take on your traditional cozy drinks.

Simple Apple Cider Wine

Cooler weather is a great time for hot cider. This hot red wine drink is a simple apple-cinnamon red wine recipe to keep you cozy, with classic fall flavors.

2 cinnamon sticks
3 cloves
3 tart apples
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
2 bottles California Zinfandel

Peel and cut apples.
Place cinnamon sticks and cloves on a cheesecloth folded to double thickness. Gather corners, and tie with a string.
Place the spice bag into a crockpot or saucepan on the stovetop. Add the wine, peeled apples, and lemon juice
Cover and cook on low, leaving to simmer. You’ll want to keep the heat low enough to avoid reducing, but warm enough to let the spices infuse.
Remove the spice bag before serving. Serve while warm

Who doesn’t love a rich, warm cup of hot chocolate? This grownup version of your favorite childhood treat can be made with your favorite dessert wine, and topped with whipped cream or marshmallows, for the perfect hot red wine treat for a winter’s day.

1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks or chocolate shavings
3/4 cup red wine
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Blackberry Mulled Hot Wine

Mulled wine is a holiday classic, and this blackberry version is a unique twist, with plenty of great flavors and warming spices. It’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

1 bottle Merlot
6 whole cloves
4 star anise pods
2 cinnamon sticks
2 juniper berries
2 oranges
5 giant blackberries
1/4 cup brown sugar

Pour Merlot into a saucepan, along with the spices and juniper berries.
Let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes on medium heat, to let the spices infuse.
Add in the brown sugar and orange. Simmer at least an additional 10 minutes, until sugar has dissolved and orange has infused with the wine and spices. Don’t let it boil.
Serve warm.

Christmas Mulled Wine

Speaking of holiday flavors, try this party favorite mix of dry red wine and brandy. This hot wine recipe is super versatile. Choose your favorite dessert wine, and sweeten with brown sugar or maple syrup for a richer, sweeter flavor. If you’re more into a bitter drink, keep the peels on the oranges for a stronger flavor.

1 bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir
1 orange, sliced into rounds and peeled
8 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
2 star anise
2 tbsp honey
1/4 cup brandy

Combine wine, brandy, spices, orange slices, and honey to a large saucepan. Stir to combine, then cook to medium-high heat and let simmer. Cover, and leave on low heat for at least 1 hour.
Strain fruits and spices. Serve immediately, or reheat slowly to serve warm.

Swedish Glogg

Mulled wine is a seasonal favorite. But when you’re looking for a new twist on an old classic, sometimes, the traditional route is best. This recipe for Swedish Glogg uses familiar spices and some added flavors. We recommend a dry red wine that isn’t too sweet.

1 bottle of your favorite red wine
1 1/2 cup bourbon
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp orange zest
3 tbsp raisins
1 tbsp cardamom pods
2 tbsp fresh ginger root slices
1 stick of cinnamon
8 cloves
2 tbsp almonds
orange slices

Combine wine, bourbon, sugar, orange zest, cardamom pods, ginger root, and cinnamon stick, as well as 2 tsp of raisins to a pot. Heat on low and leave to simmer for 2 minutes. Don’t let it boil.
Remove from heat and let it steep for an hour before serving.
Strain fruit and spices
Reheat gently before serving
Serve with the remaining raisins and almonds. Garnish with orange slices.

Hi to everyone. My name is Jason McClain!

As the proprietor of McClain Cellars, I am thrilled to finally do the one thing I have always loved the most. Create amazing wines to be shared with my family and friends. After spending 25 years in the dot-com space, my wife Sofia and I decided to throw caution to the wind and focus on what is really important: family, friends, faith and freedom. These are the pillars of this winery and why I love everything about it.

A Wine-Infused Twist On A Manhattan Cocktail

Typically a Manhattan is made with whiskey or bourbon, sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters. We&rsquove switched up this classic cocktail with the use of red wine instead of sweet vermouth, and I think you&rsquore going to love the flavor!

We always seem to have red wine in our house, for drinking, cooking and just because we love it. We don&rsquot always have vermouth, as some of my family members can attest to&hellipso we made a few adjustments to this drink recipe.

So this Harvest Moon Manhattan has taken its place in our kitchen. Strong, boozy but a slight sweet flavor, this drink is perfect for sipping on a cold night by a fire.

You can use your favorite red wine for this cocktail a dry red or a sweeter red will work. It&rsquos really about the flavors that you like drinking!

Belmont Jewel

If your tastes lean toward fruity drinks, the Belmont Jewel is a fantastic choice. Essentially, this recipe is a pomegranate lemonade spiked with bourbon. It can be mixed up in minutes and is sure to please.

Quick and easy red wine cocktail recipes

Whilst there’s nothing wrong with sipping Sangria on a summer’s day, these fruity red wine cocktails make a refreshing change from the norm.

So whether you’re enjoying an evening relaxing at home or looking for the perfect drink to entertain friends this bank holiday weekend, check out these quaffable creations.

Because they’re so drinkable, we’ve opted for non-alcoholic wine, but feel free to experiment with conventional wine and different grape varieties such as Tempranillo, which is synonymous with reds from the Spanish region of Rioja.

Adding gin to this champagne cocktail makes it more potent without affecting the taste. Aside from 1½ cups of gin, the ingredients include a few lime slices, a cup of lime juice (fresh), a ¼ cup of honey syrup, and a ½ cup each of Cappelletti, Angostura bitters, and champagne.

Red Wine Spritzer

I can’t believe that the 4th of July is here! Well not today, but so close. Time to figure out what you are going to make, what you are going to drink, and who you are going to spend it with. Are you going to grill out and then head to see fireworks? Need another fun drink idea? Skinny Mojitos are always a hit too!

We are spending the day with friends we haven’t seen in years! Lots of catching up, good food, drinks, and then fireworks to close out the night. Exciting to spend the 4th of July like we did years ago when all our kids were babies! I am bringing my Cheesy Corn Dip, because it always disappears quickly.

Are you a wine drinker? I am definitely a red wine kind of girl. But I have a lot of friends who are white wine drinkers, or maybe not big fans of wine. Which is when a wine sprizter is a great alternative. Plus, it is so darn simple to make. This Easy Sangria Recipe is another one of my favorite to use a bottle of wine in.

This Red Wine Spritzer has just 2 ingredients, you can’t get any easier than that! To make this version you just fill a glass with ice, then fill with half red wine and half with club soda or Sprite. Fizzy, fruity, and refreshing. I have made this cocktail in the past with simple syrup and then just top with club soda for the fizz. Using sprite sweetens and adds flavor at the same time! You could even use your favorite white wine to make a White Wine Spritzer using the exact same method.

One of my best friends is a beer drinker. Whenever we get together she gets beer, and I get wine. Or we both get Margaritas, because who says no to those! She actually tried a red wine spritzer at a restaurant and was telling me I should try it. So we made these together and spent the day sitting outside and enjoying a drink together.

Of course we had yummy snacks to go with it like Rosemary Roasted Olives. Super refreshing on a summer day. The recipe below is written using the full bottle of wine, but you can make just 1. I like a 1 to 1 ratio, but some people prefer more wine to sparkling. So mix it up and see what you like!

I created a fun group on Facebook, and I would love for you to join us! It’s a place where you can share YOUR favorite recipes, ask questions, and see what’s new at Dinners, Dinners and Desserts (so that you never miss a new recipe)! If you’d like to check it out, you can request to join HERE.
