If you are looking for a delicious, summer drink, then I have the cocktail for you. It is called the "Crymax" and it reminds me of my younger days (early 90's) when I was a huge wine cooler fan....I thought I was so fancy back then! And speaking of fancy, you can find this recipe in Fancy AF Cocktails, written by Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval, two bartenders/castmates from Bravo's Vanderpump Rules.
I first made this drink for my upcoming podcast On The Rox With Mallie Fox and have since then, made it several times. It is fabulous!!!
5 Ounces Pinot Grigio
1/2 Ounce Grand Marnier
1 1/2 Ounces of Strawberry Puree
2 Ounces Soda Water
1 Lemon Wedge
Add Pinot Grigio, Grand Marnier and strawberry puree to a tall glass of ice. Stir lightly to mix and then top with soda water (I was out of soda water so I used strawberry flavored sparkling water), squeeze the juice from the lemon wedge and drink up!
