Wine & Spirits Mix It Up for Today's Hottest Cocktail Trend

Wine Cocktails are All the Rage

Black Tie Affair Cocktail

Today’s hottest cocktail trend gives new meaning to the phrase “wine and spirits,” as leading mixologists across the nation marry the two for a refreshing blend of “wine cocktails” to usher in the spring and summer seasons.

“Traditionally wine and spirits have been an either/or choice for consumers and bartenders alike,” notes Jim Amstutz, national sales director for Global Spirits USA.  “Now, however, we’re seeing a global trend at bars and restaurants combining spirits and a variety of wines in some exciting new cocktails.”
