Celebrate Summer With These 4 Delicious Drinks Created With Wine, Manhattan, New York
Summer is the perfect season for relaxing by the pool, lake, or ocean. One way to elevate those special moments is enjoying a refreshingly mixed drink. Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits on the Upper West Side in Manhattan is the local stop for all the ingredients to create amazing concoctions. Here, they share several tantalizing summer drinks made with wine.

4 Summer Drinks With Wine As the Main Ingredient

1. Sangria

Juicy wedges of orange and apples paired with peaches, strawberries, and either red or white wine means summer has officially arrived. First, cut up the fruit and place the pieces in a pitcher. Add in equal parts of brandy and orange liquor and mix well. Then, add either red and white wine and let the creation marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight for optimum flavor.

2. Wine Spritzer

Add some sparkle to your summer chill with a fun and zesty wine spritzer. To make the most of this appealing drink, you should chill the white wine beforehand. Combine ¼ cup of cold club soda with roughly ¾ cup of perfectly iced white wine. Mix thoroughly and add a lime wedge to each glass.

3. Peach Bellini

wineA delicious summer brunch would not be complete without servings of tantalizing peach bellinis. Start by blending mango nectar and peach slices until the combination is smooth. Add sugar syrup, which is equal parts of sugar and water. Pour this into a glass and add either white wine, champagne, or Prosecco. The marriage of the fruit mixture with bubbly spirits is an instant seasonal delight.

4. French 75

This classic cocktail will be a party favorite at your summer soirees. Fill up a shaker with ice. Pour in gin, sugar, and fresh lemon juice, and vigorously shake for at least 20 seconds. Use a champagne flute to strain the drink. For an added pop of fizz, top off the French 75 with some champagne and stir. The sky is the limit with garnishes—dark, pitted cherries or a thin twirl of lemon peel are both excellent choices.
