Red, Wine & Blue: Strawberry Moscato Lemonade with Basil & Blueberries
WineWeaver have come up with a red wine cocktail that is perfect for Summer BBQs and Fourth of July Parties. Made with either Moscato or Cabernet Sauvignon, this refreshing take on an alcoholic lemonade, also has a touch of savoury about it due to the basil, that will ensure this thirst-quenching drink outshines all the usual sickly sweet summer cocktails.
Summer Red Wine Cocktail Recipe:
- 6 oz Moscato or Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine
- 1 teaspoon sugar (caster or superfine works best)
- 1 sprig basil
- 4 tsp lemon juice
- Splash of soda water
- 1 small handful Blueberries
- 4 Strawberries, sliced
Summer Cocktail Instructions:
Dissolve the sugar in lemon juice and a splash of soda. Mix well together along with the spring of basil.
Pour the mixture over ice in a big, beautiful wine glass then add the Moscato red wine or Cabernet Sauvignon.
Stir gently and garnish with sliced strawberry and blueberries.
Now simply kick back in the summer sunshine and relax!
