Easy cocktail ideas?

Asked by Gemini (495points) May 29th, 2010

Ideally it would be wine based, or even liqueur based. No spirits please, I don’t drink them. My drink of choice has been champagne and Five-Alive but my champagne has been discontinued and the next one up is more expensive than I would like. I do like Sangria, but I need something I could mix up one at a time in a glass…maybe just 2 or 3 ingredients. I like bubbly but it isn’t a must, and not too sweet if that helps. : )

My father in law drinks the occasional red wine mixed with cola.
And of course, i now found out, there is even a Wikipedia page about it.

I’m a huge fan of champagne with raspberry juice.

You can use a natural or lightly sweetend.


⅔ Champagne

⅓ raspberry juice

a couple drops of lime juice

garnish with thinly sliced lime and float a few fresh Raspberries….mmmm

Pomegranite juice is delicious too, same ⅔ to ⅓ ratio

A mimosa is champagne with orange juice.

Creme de cocoa and some nasty well vodka mixed with a dash of whipped cream. Shake well.

It’s called the “Santorum shot.”
