Amoretti Drink Recipe: Pear Wine-tini
Earlier this month we reintroduced the spring wine-tini, kicking off the season with our (if we do say so ourselves) delicious Passion Wine-tini recipe. It’s the perfect spring wine-tini: light and fruity, but not sugary sweet.
The beauty of the wine-tini is that it brings the best of all worlds together: it’s a punch, a cocktail, a glass of wine, and a refreshing dose of fruit. Plus, when you use an Amoretti cocktail mix, you know that you’re getting the maximum amount of real fruit possible. All of our cocktail mixes, including the tasty pear cocktail mix in this recipe, are made from real fruit – not artificial flavoring.
Amoretti Pear Wine-tini Recipe
- 1 part vodka
- 1 part Amoretti Pear Martini Cocktail Mix
- 3 parts red wine
- Sliced strawberries
- Sliced oranges
Add all ingredients to a large pitcher and stir. Chill in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, remove pitcher from refrigerator and add ice. (Ideally, the fruit should be allowed to soak for at least a couple of hours.) By chilling the ingredients, instead of icing them down from room temperature, you’ll enjoy a wine-tini that is less diluted and features more distinct fruit flavor.
Wine-tini: Great Option for Parties
We love serving wine-tinis at our summer parties for a few reasons. One, they taste great. But, secondly, the wine-tini is a smart option because it’s such an affordable drink when compared to other cocktails and punches. Here’s how we break it down…
Vodka: The vodka in your wine-tini recipe can be pretty cheap. Let’s be honest, no one’s really going to taste the vodka in this recipe because you’ve got (a) a rich martini mix, (b) red wine, and (c) lots of fresh fruit. So, if there’s one ingredient in which you cut costs, make it the vodka. Also, as a side note, you can consider getting fruit flavored vodka. Your call.
Pear Cocktail Mix: Our cocktail mixes aren’t the cheapest mixes on the market, and we’re okay with that. Simply put, we believe that quality sometimes costs just a little bit more. Most customers agree that our real fruit cocktail mixes, hand crafted here in Southern California, are worth it!
Red Wine: Honestly, you can totally get away with a cheap red wine in this wine-tini recipe. When making a large punch bowl-sized serving of this recipe, we often opt for boxed wine.
