Mixing with wine can be a lot of fun because there are so many wines to explore and each will make an entirely different cocktail in the end. Another aspect that I enjoy about wine cocktails is that these are great ways to thoroughly enjoy those cheaper wines. Not to say that there are not an ever increasing number of decent $5 wines available, but if there is one that you find a little too dry, sweet, or tart one of these drinks may be the answer for finishing off the bottle.
