Boozy recipes featuring red or white wine. Pick your poison!
  1. Red Wine Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Buttercream: We would never forgive ourselves if we didn’t include a wine and chocolate combination in this round-up. And what’s the best way to have said combination? In cake form, of course. This rich, red wine-infused chocolate cake gets topped with the prettiest, fluffiest pink raspberry buttercream. via Spend with Pennies
  2. Crockpot Red Wine Braised Short Ribs: Tender, fall-off-the-bone braised short ribs are heavenly, aren’t they? Especially when they’re married with dry red wine, carrots, onions, and lots of herbs and aromatics. via Salt and Lavender
  3. Wine Gummy Bears: We can’t think of a better way to feel like a kid in adult form than by making (and eating) these fruity and terribly easy drunken gummy bears. via Stay Snatched
  4. Coq au Riesling: Meet Coq au Vin’s slightly lighter, equally delicious cousin: Coq au Riesling. Made with (you guessed it!) Riesling, this comforting dish combines white wine, bacon, and mushrooms with chicken thighs and a sinfully creamy sauce. via Olivia’s Cuisine
  5. Drunken One-Pot Italian Chicken: You had me at drunken. But I’m even more in with the ‘one pot.’ This oven-roasted chicken dish is easy enough to make for a weeknight dinner and equally impressive as a special occasion meal. The ‘drunken‘ factor comes from wine, port, and brandy. Yes, please! via Supergolden Bakes
  6. Pavlova with Red Wine Cherry Compote: For those who aren’t a fan of chocolate (gasp), this layered pavlova is a beautiful, delicious wine-infused dessert. The show-stopping topping is composed of drunken cherries and a creamy, decadent mascarpone whipped cream. via Cooks with co*cktails
