Enjoy a bounty of lush berry flavor with this Royal Cornucopia cocktail. Fresh blackberries and cabernet sauvignon wine give the drink its regal color. Coconut juice stretches the flavor with a little sweetness and light coconut flavor. Using brown sugar as additional sweetener rather than simple sugar gives this drink a little more warming depth.
I like to use the four-pack mini wines when making wine cocktails. The price is usually comparative to a full size bottle of wine. You can make two cocktails from the recipe below with one mini bottle of cabernet sauvignon wine. Perfect for date night cocktails!
