Author Notes

March 24 marks National Cocktail Day, and this Riunite cocktail recipe incorporating fresh, seasonal ingredients is the perfect beverage for the occasion. Riunite Lambrusco, a fruity, fizzy, and semi-sweet red wine, pairs beautifully with the bright flavors of strawberry, lemon, and basil. The addition of Earl Grey syrup and balsamic vinegar add an interesting twist to this refreshing, low-ABV cocktail served over ice. —Riunite
