For a refreshing beverage to cool off this summer, try mixing together your favorite wine with a splash of orange juice and Grand Marnier! While Grand Marnier has never been my favorite liqueur, I have awesome memories of beachside cocktails and shots with it! It was a favorite among old friends, and it paired well with mixed drinks.
I haven’t indulged in any shots in quite some time (yet alone have Grand Marnier!), so this was a fun twist on an old favorite. Wine can be enjoyed on its own or in a fruity sangria, but sometimes I find that they are perfect in a quick cocktail. You can add flavor to your favorite white wine with mint and this orange liqueur.
Use your favorite pinot grigio (or try chardonnay or sauvignon blanc!) to mix it up.
You could serve this in a champagne flute or fill a wine tumbler to take with you to the beach! Crushed ice makes every drink better (true story, it’s a fact!), and you can double or triple this recipe to fill a pitcher for a fun seaside getaway.
