It’s Memorial Day weekend, but more importantly it’s National Wine Day AKA my favorite day of the year. In fact, I probably celebrated a little too much last night in preparation for the holiday.
Today I’m teaming up with Adirondack Winery and the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival to show you THREE amazing wine cocktail recipes made by yours truly.
Please note – All of these recipes will be featured at the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival on June 29th & 30th and all of these distilleries, wines and products will be available for purchase at the festival as well.

2 oz Taconic Distillery Whiskey
1/2 oz Amethyst Sunset Wine from Adirondack Winery
1/2 oz More Good Hibiscus Roobios Syrup
Juice from 1/4 Lemon
Directions: Pour whiskey, syrup & lemon juice in shaker with ice. Shake 10-12 times. Pour into glass with ice. Pour wine over a spoon into glass to give it a beautiful ombre look! You could also add an egg white in there to make it frothier, but I opted out for this one.

2 oz Soaring Strawberry Wine from Adirondack Winery
