20 Refreshing & Easy Summer Wine Cocktails

As someone who was born and raised North Carolina, I’ve tried to cope with the humid, unbearably hot summers in a multitude of ways: portable fans, ice packs in places they don’t normally go, cranking up the AC to arctic levels, and so on.

But as I’ve gotten older and wiser, I’ve come to learn that nothing beats the heat quite like a tall glass of something cool, refreshing, and filled with wine!

These summery wine cocktails are easy to make and will make you forget all about how much you’re sweating under the blazing sun.

Most of them are 5 ingredients or less, and feature whites, reds, rosés, and sparkling wines. From sangrias to slushies to spritzers, there’s something for everyone on this list!

So let’s get ready to take on the humidity and find our new favorite summer wine cocktails to drink on the beach, poolside, and while sitting on top of an air conditioner!
