Your New Favorite White Wine Cocktails

Are you a white wine connoisseur? Are you curious about some exciting ways to mix up your white wine with some delicious white wine cocktails? You’ve come to the right place. Papi Wines has created a list of some of the most refreshing, easy-to-make wine cocktails to make and enjoy with friends and family. We've covered your next happy hour with these must-tries, from white wine cocktails to margarita cocktails.

What Is a Wine Cocktail?

A wine cocktail, like a typical cocktail, is a mixed drink. It typically includes some ingredients, mainly wine, and a drink mixer. Wine cocktails will have wine as the base ingredient, while cocktails made with wine may consist of wine but have a different base of whiskey, tequila, vodka, or rum and include red or white wine as another ingredient.

There are many wine cocktail variations, such as sparkling wine cocktails or champagne cocktails like a Bellini, red wine cocktails, white wine cocktails like a spritzer, and more. While wine alone is divine, there are various mixers to try with wine, adding something new to the perfect cocktail.

White Wine Cocktail

Bubbly champagne cocktails may be more common, but wine-based drinks are becoming the new favorite summer cocktail. While you cannot go wrong with a mimosa or Aperol spritzer on those warm summer days, consider making a yummy watermelon white wine spritzer, wine sangria, or Sauvignon Blanc Punch. Try any of the following wine cocktails that can be made using some of our best-selling Papi Wines.

Watermelon White Wine Spritzer

Nothing says summer fiesta like a watermelon cocktail. This dreamy watermelon white wine spritzer is one you and your friends will never forget. Create this perfect watermelon beverage using your favorite Papi white wine, like our best-selling Pinot Grigio.


  • 2 cups watermelon, cubed and chilled
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar (or sweetener of your choice)
  • 2 cups white wine, chilled (try Papi’s Pinot Grigio!)
  • 2 cups club soda, chilled


White Wine Sangria

A tried-and-true staple wine cocktail is everyone’s beloved sangria. Make this classic cocktail that bursts with summer flavors. This light, crips wine-based drink is ideal for any special occasion. Try it with your favorite red variety for a lush classic red sangria. Otherwise, try Papi’s Pinot Grigio for a more crisp and balanced taste. Also, curate your dream sangria using any fruit. Feel free to mix and match your favorite fruits.


  • 1 bottle of white wine chilled (A drier white works great, try Papi’s Pinot Grigio, or for a sweeter drink, use Papi’s NEW White Peach Sangria!)
  • 4 ounces Lillet blanc
  • 1 medium peach, pitted and sliced
  • 1 green apple, cored and sliced
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • Three mint sprigs
  • Club soda, chilled, to top (optional)


Margarita Wine Cocktail

A fantastic alternative to a typical margarita, a margarita wine cocktail includes all the flavors you love, like lemon and lime, mixed with your favorite white wine and tequila. It’s the perfect drink to make a pitcher (or two) for the next time you host everyone at your place.


  • 1 bottle Pinot Grigio (Papi’s, of course)
  • 1 12-ounce can of limeade concentrate
  • Water
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 cup or more of good-quality tequila
  • Sea salt lime, and orange slices for garnishes
