Alright, we’ll say it.
If you haven’t had a wine-tini, you’re missing out. Here in Southern California, the wine-tini is one of our favorite things about summer. It’s cool, it’s refreshing, and it will really help unfurl your brow after a long day of dealing with kids bored with summer vacation (– already!).
Do we have your attention?
That line usually does the trick. So as your kids are winding up – and you’re winding down – try the Amoretti Tropic-Apple Wine-Tini. Here’s what you’ll need: a bottle of wine, blue curaçao, our delicious Pineapple Martini Cocktail Mix, fresh fruit, and ginger beer.
If that requires too much shopping, you can always make a wine-tini on your own using any of our tasty cocktail mixes and wine (red or white). Check out our wine-tini recipe below…
Amoretti Tropic-Apple Wine-Tini
- 1 bottle (750 ml) white wine
- ½ cup blue curaçao
- 1/3 cup Amoretti Pineapple Martini Cocktail Mix
- ½ cup muddled berries (of your choice)
- 1 cup ginger beer
Chill all ingredients prior to mixing. Add these ingredients to a large pitcher and stir well. If ingredients have not been chilled, put the wine-tini mixture in the refrigerator for several hours. Once ingredients are chilled, add ice, and serve!
Personalize Your Wine-Tini
If you really want to take your wine-tini abilities up to the next level, here are a few ways you can make the drink your own:
- Use a mixture of cocktail mixes. Who says you have to use just one? Try experimenting with a variety of cocktail mixes, and use them in different proportions.
- Rim your wine glass with sugar prior to serving. Not only does this bring an extra aesthetic appeal to your wine-tini, but it also makes for a more fun and delicious beverage!
- Garnish with a fresh sprig of mint or other herbs. While mint is the easy and obvious go-to in the world of garnishes, it isn’t the only herb that looks and tastes great in wine-tinis. A long sprig of rosemary or a bundled tuft of lemongrass can add a lot to your glass.
- Use frozen fruit cubes instead of ice cubes. Not only will this keep your wine-tini from becoming diluted with ice melt, but frozen fruit cubes will add great flavor that’s “unlocked” as you work your way through the cocktail!
Have fun and experiment with your wine-tini recipes!
