Though weddings and events at vineyards and wineries are sure to be naturally stunning and romantic, there is one condition that may turn some people off: most wineries do not allow outside hard alcohol to be purchased and consumed at events held there. Beer is usually allowed, but these events are usually lacking in the popular liquor choices present at most other parties. But there is still hope! There are hundreds of fun wine-based cocktails concoctions that bar tenders can mix up and serve that will leave your bar anything but boring. Aside from the yummy and sweet sangria that we all know and love, here are some more options for your next vineyard gathering.
The Kalimotxo is a yummy creation made with equal parts red wine and coca-cola. Served with or without ice, this drink is undoubtedly refreshing with a slice of lemon or lime. Plus, your bartender will get a kick out of hearing guests try to pronounce it.
The classic 80’s Wine Cooler is sure to bring about fun times and fond memories. Made with 4 oz white wine, 6 oz 7-Up, and splashes of grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, and lemon juice, this cocktail has a little something for everybody.
