I am a lover of wine and cocktails! So why not put them together! This Red Wine and Tequila cocktail is easy to make and is a delicious blend of Pinot Noir and your favorite tequila! It’s one of my favorite easy mixed drinks to make when I have leftover wine (it’s rare, but it does happen!)
Even if you aren’t the biggest red wine fan, you’ll love this interesting cocktail idea!

Can You Mix Red Wine and Tequila?
Of course, you can! While red wine might not be the first ingredient to pop into your head when making easy cocktails, it really does make a great mixer! Don’t want to mix it with another liquor? You can even just mix red wine with a little sparkling water to make a quick drink idea!
While I am not a big red wine fan, I’m certainly not going to ignore an entire color of wine and exclude it from my wine cocktail experimenting.One Hope Wine graciously sent me the wine to create a whole bunch of wine cocktails with! If you aren’t familiar with One Hope Wine, they are a fantastic company that raises money for a multitude of causes. I absolutely back that with all my heart. So while this isn’t a sponsored post, they are making it possible for me to share what is on my heart, you know, like really important wine cocktail recipes…So please show them some love!
How to Make a Red Wine and Tequila Cocktail
Pinot Noir and tequila. Why not! And grapefruit soda. Ok. Looking at the ingredients, I had NO idea how this cocktail would end up tasting (much like this White Zinfandel cocktail that I ended up LOVING!). Which is part of what I love about sharing and creating cocktails!
- 1 1/2 oz. One Hope Pinot Noir
- 1 1/2 oz. tequila
- 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
- 1/2 oz. agave
- 2 oz. grapefruit soda
Because I have never worked with wine in cocktails before I decided that I would do a little internet research and see what I could find. The cocktail I made was found on a Cosmo article of other wine cocktail recipes. They called this one Red Splash.
- Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Shake gently (mixing soda in a cocktail shaker can get messy!)
- Strain into a glass with ice and garnish.
This first wine cocktail was just ok. I could certainly taste the red wine but it was really nice with the tequila and the grapefruit soda. But it was super fun to try something new. My non-love of the drink stems probably from my non-love of red wine in general.
