Do warm weather and patio lounging have you craving a fun drink that’s both tasty and refreshing? These five wine cocktails from local bars in Birmingham will have you sipping on cloud wine.
1. Freddy’s Wine Bar
For a mean wine cocktail, look no further than Freddy’s Wine Bar on Highland Ave in Birmingham. One of their ultimate wine cocktail concoctions features Axta Vermouth Rojo on the rocks with a splash of soda and an orange slice for garnish.
2. Galley and Garden
Say hello to the Baptiste from Galley and Garden. Light and sweet, this wine cocktail includes Zaya 12-year rum, fresh lemon, pineapple & Sichuan peppercorn syrup, B&B and Rose wine.
3. Paper Doll Bar
Orange is the name of the game for this wine cocktail from Paper Doll. The Aperal Spritz mixes prosecco, Aperol and soda water, which offers a sweet start and a pleasantly bitter finish.
4. Queen’s Park
If summer were a drink, it would be the Port Cobbler from Queen’s Park. Made with ruby port, sherry passionfruit, orange and lemon, it’s juicy, tart and just a little nutty for those laid back summer days.
5. The Louis
For a picture perfect wine cocktail, sip on the Buena Vista Spritz from The Louis. Made with Spanish Rose, fresh juices and St. Germain, it offers just the right mix of fruity and floral.
