I haven’t had a lot of luck with wine cocktails so far, but this one was really good. It wasn’t too sweet or too strong, and the flavor of each of the ingredients came through. Plus, for no logical reason, I feel pretty damn classy drinking it; like I should be wearing a cocktail dress and listening to Ella Fitzgerald sing Cole Porter. Could have been the name.

My mom accidentally bought white zinfandel, which she apparently doesn’t like, so she asked me if I wanted to make something with it. Naturally I settled on sangria.
Sangria is really wine for people who don’t like wine, so if you do decide to make it, be sure to use the cheapest wine you can find. You’re not supposed to taste the wine! Also, just as a warning, this is the kind of stuff that really sneaks up on you. Like you’ve had 2 glasses and feel as if you’re drinking kool-aid, until all of a sudden you’re REALLY drunk and belatedly realizing you’ve just drunk an entire bottle of wine. Not that I’m speaking from personal experience or anything.

Canyon Oaks Moscato

Too lazy to make a cocktail tonight. Also, I’m out of brandy. *sad face* ANYway, my mom bought me this moscato! It’s not really fruity or very fizzy. I’d probably recommend going with something else.
