Cocktails on a Tuesday? Wine not!!

Wine in cocktails? Wine not?!…I’ve found 5 rad wine cocktail recipes for you along with links to wines, yay me! happy drinking you!!

 vinomofoVinomofo are feelin’ all Oprah like today and basically giving away the vino, everybody gets the vino for ridiculously amaze prices today! Between 50% and 70% off selected cases!!!!

How good is a cocktail to take a celebration up a notch?! Sometimes too good :-/ ha ha! Due to the lower alcohol content, wine based cocktails make it a little easier on the head to have say 2 rather than 1, or some ratio like that! Wine cocktails go beyond sangria, though how good is sangria?! There are sparkling based ones, rose, white, red, basically there is a cocktail or five for every single varietal of vino there is out there! Great news! So buy a few bottles, or even a mixed case, grab a few friends and get mixing.
