Celebrate National Red Wine Day (28th August) with these tasty red wine recipes

Whilst there’s nothing wrong with sipping Sangria on a summer’s day, these fruity red wine cocktails make a refreshing change from the norm.

So whether you’re enjoying an evening relaxing at home or looking for the perfect drink to entertain friends this bank holiday weekend, check out these quaffable creations.

Because they’re so drinkable, we’ve opted for non-alcoholic wine, but feel free to experiment with conventional wine and different grape varieties such as Tempranillo, which is synonymous with reds from the Spanish region of Rioja.
