8 delicious wine cocktails to make this weekend

HAVING A NIGHT in with a bottle of wine seems like a good idea right now. But why not spruce it up?

As the wise philosphers D:Ream once said, thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiings, can only get better.

1. Wine and 7up, with a twist

Irish women love adding 7up to their wine, but it’s even better if you throw in some mixed berries and make it into a sangria. Skip the extra booze if you’re keeping it simple.

2. Apple and Pink Julep

Finally, a way to get rid of that port you bought for your mam to drink over Christmas. This recipe just requires port, mint leaves, and some apple juice. Sure it’s practically two of your five a day.
