This year, more than ever, we are savoring summer to the very. last. drop. We enlisted the help of a few talented bartenders to come up with creative wine-based cocktails that you can easily recreate at home. These cocktails are seriously refreshing thanks to fresh summer flavors like peach, watermelon, and passionfruit. So read on, whip up a batch, and head outside to soak in the last of that warm summer sun.
