Ginger + Red Wine Fizz

Ginger + Red Wine Fizz // Feast + West

When you think about red wine cocktails, it’s easy to be drawn to sangria. It’s fruity, often has a delicious alcoholic add-in and pairs well with al fresco dinner parties. In short, sangria is amazing.

But it is not the only cocktail you can make with red wine. And that’s why I wanted to introduce you to this Ginger + Red Wine Fizz.

Ginger + Red Wine Fizz // Feast + West

Red wine is certainly tricky. I am not a huge fan of red wine by itself, and its wealth of intense flavors make it hard to mix into cocktails. Thankfully, my friend and wine expert Rachel von Sturmer is sharing lots of tips for finding and drinking wine this month! Do not miss her red wine guide.

For this cocktail, you’ll need a nice, fruity red wine, such as a pinot noir. You’ll mix with it a splash of orange liqueur, like Cointreau or Triple Sec, and a sweet and spicy ginger beer. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary, and you’re good to go! This would make a lovely fall sip. Cheers! // susannah

      Hey Gessell! Ginger ale is a great substitute if you can’t find ginger beer. I haven’t tested this recipe with anything else, but if it’s just another source of fizz you’re looking for, some club soda or sparkling lemonade would probably work okay as well, but they obviously wouldn’t be “ginger-y,” if that makes sense!
