Summer Wine Cocktails

Summer is here and it's the time for holidays, sunsets and cocktails. Two of my favourite cocktails are a Bellini and a Kir Royal. A Kir Royal is so simple to make and you can't beat a glass of champagne and blackcurrant liqueur, served chilled.  I also love a good Bellini. I once went to Harry's Bar in Venice where the Bellini was invented. It's such an interesting place, very small, historic and full of real characters. 

If you haven't tried a Bellini, I highly recommend it. A Bellini is a light and refreshing drink made with Prosecco and peach juice and is lovely and fruity. 

To recreate a good summer cocktail at home, have a look at this infographic from Roberson Wine. I'm off to Spain in a couple of months and I'm looking forward to sharing a jug of Sangria, topped with fresh fruit, with my husband. It's like summer in a glass isn't it?


Tell me, do you have a favourite cocktail made with wine? Would you like to try any of the drinks above.

  2. Ooh, the Bellini sounds delish. I'm so rubbish with cocktails, I rarely ever drink and when I do I hardly ever order them because I don't know all the names. Such a fail haha. I'd like to try making my own mocktail though, something like the Melon Spritzer sounds up my street.
