Wine cocktails becoming more trendy again

As we often see, life runs in cycles. It is the same with trends in food and beverages. Wine cocktails are once again making a comeback onto the scene. While a nice glass of wine will always be something you can enjoy by itself, with summer coming on, don't be afraid to try something different along the way as well.

For something a little bit sweet and refreshing, try something like this:


½ lime
2½ teaspoons sugar
3 ounces Merlot
Lime spiral to garnish

Muddle lime and sugar until all lime juice is extracted.
Add wine. Pour with ice into a shaker and shake vigorously.
Pour into a lowball glass and garnish with a lime spiral
