Mixtape Mixed Drinks: Wine (Not a Cocktail, but still in the Mix.)

September 15, 2013

I like cocktails, but I love wine a whole lot more. Nothing sounds better to me than pouring a glass of red wine into my new Mixtape Glass and playing these 7 feel good songs that gets me smiling (and, unfortunately for my neighbors, singing) every single time. I would title my mixtape mix: Keep Calm & Treat Yo’ Self (to a little wine). Some may call this the Lazy Girl Drink, and …I’m okay with that.

Wine in a Mixtape Glass

No time or just don’t feel like mixing a drink? There’s nothing wrong with a little fresh-from-the-bottle wine!

The Drink:
1. Uncork the Cabernet Sauvignon (or that cheap wine bottle you bought from your nearest bodega).
2. Pour.

The Playlist:
1. Part of This World – The Little Mermaid
2. Don’t Stop Believing – Glee Cover
3. The Way You Make me Feel – Michael Jackson
4. Quelqu’un M’a Dit -Carla Bruni
5. Dog Days Are Over – Florence & The Machine
