Easy Christmas Cocktails from Vampire Wines

Even vampires love this time of year! It’s a time of gathering with friends and family and indulging in decadent wine. If you’re searching for easy Christmas cocktails that incorporate our luxurious wines, you’re in luck! We’ve created two simple wine cocktail recipes for you to make for your upcoming holiday festivities.

Easy Christmas Cocktails

If you’re a wine lover looking for a special way to indulge this holiday season, we recommend spicing things up with a bloody good wine cocktail! Below are two of our favorite ways to enjoy our Vampire Wines during December.

The Holiday Wine Spritzer

Wine spritzers are a real crowd-pleaser at the castle! The instructions for this Christmas cocktail are super simple and only require four ingredients.


Cranberry Juice

Ginger Ale



Combine 750ml of our Vampire Chardonnay with three cups of cranberry juice until well combined. When ready to serve, top with 3 cups of ginger ale and one cup of cranberries. Don’t forget to serve it our Vampire Stemless Wine Glass Set!

Red Wine Hot Chocolate

Nothing’s better than curling up with a cup of hot chocolate during the winter months. This indulgent hot cocktail is wonderful to enjoy when curled up with a book (may we recommend, A Walk in the Sun?) or with guests during the dessert portion of your holiday meal.


2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

2/3 cup Vampire Merlot

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup half and half

Pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Combine the semisweet chocolate chips, Vampire Merlot, milk, half, and half in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate chips are melted, and the mixture is hot. Then, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Pour into mugs and serve in our Vampire Vineyards Mugs. Add whipped cream and sprinkles if desired!

Happy Holiday from Vampire Vineyards

These easy Christmas cocktails are perfect for the holidays and during those chilly winter nights. If you prefer the sophisticated simplicity of a bottle of wine, check out our wine cellar to treat yourself, and don’t forget to gift the host or hostess of your celebrations! Happy Holidays!
