Turning unwanted wine into cocktails

Ever find yourself sitting with a bottle of wine that you hate? It happens to us all. Rather than pouring the contents down the drain or being forced to cook with it, make yourself a delicious wine cocktail with this simple recipe.


4 ounces dry white wine, chilled
2 ounces Aperol
5 dashes orange bitters
1 lemon or orange twist, for garnish


Fill a cocktail glass halfway with ice. Add the wine, Aperol, and bitters and stir to combine. Rub the lemon or orange twist around the rim of the glass, place in the drink, and serve immediately.
