Cocktails for the Half-Empty Wine Bottle

Via, here are Alex Day’s cocktail ideas for the white wine you didn’t finish:

1. The Sauvignon Blanc Punch (New Zealand sauvignon blanc, Aperol, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, simple syrup, soda)

2. Sentimental Journey (gin, chablis, cinnamon syrup)

3. Melk Abbey (dry Austrian riesling, muddled blackberries and thyme)

4. Albariño Mint Julep (albariño, peach liqueur, mint)

In related topics, Camper English writes in the San Francisco Chronicle this week that there’s a trend toward “low-alcohol cocktails,” made with things like beer, wine, champagne, vermouth, sake, and shochu (or its Korean cousin soju). Included in the article is a recipe for a chardonnay-based cocktail called a Flying Horseman.
