Last weekend’s nearly record-breaking warm weather had us in the mood for thirst-quenching, cooling cocktails. Luckily, a few delicious cocktail recipes from Yellow Tail Wines just graced by inbox. Though it should cool down this weekend a bit, be armed with these lip-smacking libations for when the triple digits come ’round.
Orchard Temptation
2 oz. Yellow Tail Sparkling Wine

In a cocktail shaker with ice, add all ingredients except Yellow Tail Sparkling Wine. Strain into a chilled Champagne flute or martini glass. Slowly fill with the sparkling wine. Garnish with a pear slice or mint spring.
Spicy Lotus
2 oz. Yellow Tail Chardonnay
1 oz. Zen Green Tea Liqueur
1 oz. Monin spicy mango or mango puree
1 oz. Lemonade
Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a strawberry. Note: For a less spicy version, substitute Monin mango syrup for Finest Call mango puree.

1 oz. Caravella Lemoncello
1/2 oz. Monin mojito mint syrup
1/2 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. Sour mix
Shake and strain into a martini glass rimmed in sugar. Garnish with a lemon wheel. Note: The cocktail could also be served on the rocks in a wine glass.
Blueberry Watermelon
1 oz. Yellow Tail Sparkling Wine
1 ½ oz. Stoli blueberry vodka

  1. I love the names of these cocktails! I’m keeping this in mind in about a month. Not looking forward to the hot weather!

  2. I like that these don’t seem overly sweet…the lemon myrtle as well as the spicy lotus look great to me!
