With the temperatures going up outside it becomes even more important to cool down. Not only your wines but also yourself. And what is a great way to cool down when you have friends over or you relax at night after a long day?
Right, a cocktail. Yes, there’s many cocktails but today we’re looking at a specific one. And it goes along with the theme of this blog. You guessed it, it’s a wine cooler!
It’s so simple to make. Use some basic white wine. It doesn’t have to be the most expensive one that you have in your wine refrigerator. Just a nice, fruity white wine will do.
Now you chop up some strawberries, about one cup of them. Pick a handful of mint leaves and tear them up. Maybe you can even pick them from your own backyard? You want to tear them up so they release more mint flavor. And then you also need a cup of seltzer water. That will add the bubbles to the mix.
Now all you have to have is a large pitcher. You empty your bottle of your favorite white wine into it, mix it up with the strawberries and the torn mint leaves, add the cup of seltzer water and stir. Add some ice cubes and you have the perfect wine cooler for a hot summer evening.
If you want to add a little citrus taste then add some lime to the mix. But that’s completely up to you! Enjoy and make sure you at least get this type of wine cooler in case you don’t have a wine fridge at home!
If you have any cocktail left at the end of the evening then you want to make sure that you store it in a wine refrigerator. Don’t have one? Check out our wine refrigerator reviews to find the best wine fridge for your home.
