It is April; the fourth month of the year and the summer is already on its way. Though we have this strange time going around why we can’t understand that seasons are rotating and we are on our way to the summer. We hope when everything will go right, we will party hard. And a hardcore party completes with a few sips of cocktails. Cocktails can be made of different things but wine is the best prime ingredient. Here are the top 10 summer wine cocktail to refresh your mood.
Mulled wine has a spicier taste along with a rich look. This might not be a perfect wine for hot summer, but the mild cold-mild hot situation or even the winter can be a good time to enjoy this wine. For its better colour and taste, you can heat this wine first in a slow cooker along with brandy, orange juice, and sugar. Then use cheesecloth to dip the clove, cinnamon, and nutmegs in a pouch for just 30 seconds to 1 minute. Do not let the wine boil; once ready, serve with orange zest peels garnishing. With hearty cheeses, meat-pieces and slices of bread, this wine rocks in a mug.
If you are planning to go for a cookout day in the summer, this simple classic drink will just bring the mood on. Wine Spritzer is a light drink that anybody can enjoy. And you have the choice to experiment with the taste as well. If you want your wine to taste sweeter, then you choose fruity rose wine and garnish it with sweeter fruits like strawberries or orange slices. But, if you want a drier and tangier wine, then choose a white wine like Sauvignon Blac. And garnish it with citrus fruit slices like lemon. As it is summer wine cocktail, do not forget to add soda and chilled ice.
This wine cocktail might be a little unfamiliar to us; it has two other pet names which are commoner – Rioja Libre or a Joe. This wine has a unique history of its emergence. Some teenagers in the Basque country in Northern Italy once wanted to make their cheap wine taste better. So, they decided to add their cola drink into the cheaper group of red wine like Rioja, Cabernet or Pinot Noir. As complementary, you need to add stronger food items along with it to help its tannin elevate the taste of the wine.
Sangria is a classic drink that is best to be enjoyed with family and friends, chilling on a hot summer day out. A Spanish wine like Grenache or Tempranillo is the best choice for it. But the flavour depends according to what fruit you are using for the garnishing. First mix wine, brandy, sugar, and fruits in a larger pitcher. Pour that into glasses with ice topping and soda. Spanish meals will best serve your Sangria on a hot summer day. This is one of the summer wine cocktails.
Flowers have always played a very active role in garnishing summer wine cocktail and food. They have given both the food and the drink a better taste always.

Then in a wine glass first place the hibiscus flower at the bottom of it, then pour the wine into 3/4th of the glass and then pour two spoons of hibiscus syrup in them. Mix well and then serve it along with some salty food on a hot summer chilling evening with friends.
Rose has been used for garnishing food and wine for two main reasons- one it provides great colour and also it gives a sweet smell to whatever it garnishes.
