Sweet Red Wine Cocktail Recipe for the Holidays

December 20, 2016 separator Drink & Cocktail Recipes

I’m usually a dry red wine kinda girl, but mixed up the right way, sweet has its moment, too. The sweet red wine cocktail is definitely the right way.

This is an easy recipe to mix as a big batch for holiday parties. Just multiply all the ingredients by 4-8 depending on how many servings you want to make. Pour it all into a pretty punch bowl or pitcher, and float a bunch of these pretty cran apple ice cubes on top!
