Springtime Party Cocktail Guide

This spring, we’re hitting “refresh” with five simple cocktails to welcome the season. Using fresh fruits, citrus, and a garnish, simply add select wines from The Barrel Room and serve—minimal stirring and no shaker required. Cheers!



By far the simplest cocktail in the bunch, the Ginscato combines New Amsterdam gin with one of our deliciously sweet Moscato wines, and that’s pretty much it! Choose from Mirassou Winery Moscato, Mia Dolcea Moscato, or Barefoot Cellars Moscato, and taste for yourself why the Ginscato is spring’s new favorite cocktail.

20mL New Amsterdam Gin
150mL Moscato
1 lime wedge
2 mint leaves

Add the gin to the Moscato, toss in a lime wedge, and serve over ice. Garnish with two mint leaves.

Prosecco Punch

If you’re a fan of pineapple, prep the punch bowl and pass the Prosecco! This cocktail is the perfect choice for party guests this spring. With help from La Marca Prosecco (or its fancier sister, La Marca Luminore Prosecco Superiore), this bubbly crowd pleaser packs the punch.

1 cup Pineapple juice
3 cups Seltzer water
(1) 750mL Prosecco
1 cup Vanilla vodka
2 cups sliced pineapple
2 Peaches, thinly sliced
1/4 cup Fresh mint
3 cups Ice
10 Pineapple wedges
1/3 cup Granulated sugar

Combine pineapple juice, seltzer, Prosecco, vodka, pineapple slices, peaches, and mint in a punch bowl. Add ice and stir to combine. Using a wedge of pineapple, wet the rim of your glasses. Dip rims in sugar, then fill glasses with punch and garnish with a wedge of pineapple and a sprig of mint.
