MAKE A (RED) SPLASH: ELEVATE YOUR WINE COCKTAIL GAME.

MAKE A (RED) SPLASH: ELEVATE YOUR WINE COCKTAIL GAME.

If you’ve played it right (and we know you have), then your summer’s been epic. So keep it that way… and finish the season of strong. When it comes to cocktails, sometimes you want the strong and not-so-silent type. This is one of those times. Say hello to the Red Splash, the wine cocktail to beat all wine cocktails. (Or at least give the others a run for their money). Follow this recipe, and put everyone on notice: your mixology game is officially upgraded.

 

Red Splash

  • 1½ oz. Malbec wine
  • 1½ oz. white tequila
  • 2 oz. club soda
  • ½ oz. lime juice

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.

 

The Red Splash may be a bit stronger than other cocktails, and that makes it the perfect drink to finish summer strong. Your friends will love it…and what’s not to love? The sprightly fizz from the club soda, the vibrant ruby color, and of course the amazing taste of Malbec. That white tequila? It adds a little something just to make it just a touch more interesting and keep everyone guessing.

 

So be that guy. The guy who makes a statement armed only with a cocktail shaker and some Malbec. Mix, shake and pour…and toast to a summer for the ages. After they taste the Red Splash they’ll be excited to see what you have up your sleeve for next summer.
