Spice Up Summer BBQ's with Wine Cocktails

The summer barbeque season is in full swing, and it’s all about burgers, hot dogs and beer. But what about those who want to class up and sass up their spread? How about serving wine cocktails for the non-beer drinking set?

Just in time for summer, Little Black Dress Wines has come up with a variety of refreshing wine cocktails sure to spice up your barbeque. Little Black Dress Wines are a fun, trendy and an affordable way to “accessorize” your events with a touch of style.

New this summer, Little Black Dress just added a Cabernet Sauvignon to its ever-growing list of popular varietals. While most people think of white wine for summer, the new LBD Cab is light with hints of blackberry, blueberry and has a very fruit forward finish – perfect for the warm weather months.

Hosts can be proud to toast to the season with these yummy concoctions:

LBD Wines Cabernet Cocktail

2 oz Little Black Dress Cabernet
½ oz Tuaca
½ oz Amaretto
3 oz Sprite
In a shaker filled with ice, add ingredients, roll to mix, transfer to serving glass

LBD Wines Couture-tini

3 oz Little Black Dress Chardonnay
½ oz Strawberry Puree
¼ oz Agave Nectar
Top with Korbel Brut Champagne

In a shaker filled with ice, combine Little Black Dress Chardonnay, strawberry puree and agave nectar. Strain into chilled martini glass and top with Korbel Brut Champagne. Garnish with a strawberry.
