Cabernet-Sauvignon-Merlot-After-Midnight-Step-5 Hey All!

This Memorial Day weekend we spent the time at home celebrating my Army Vet husband and munching on some of our favorite foods and snacks. We also had a little home BBQ and instead of just having some generic cervezas aka beer to go along with our meal (the meals of us adults to be exact), We decided to make one of these Frontera Cocktail Recipes instead. I’m so happy we decided to change it up this year. The recipe I chose to make is called CAB/MERLOT AFTER MIDNIGHT and it’s made with Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot. It’s a very refreshing and delicious drink recipe. We really enjoyed it and we are now thinking of making it through out the Summer for all our adult guests who’d like to enjoy an alcoholic beverage when they come visit. In case you didn’t know Frontera Wines is the #1 Southern American Wine brand sold in the United States, representing incredible quality wines in a large range of classic grape types.

These wines are fantastic and they were reasonably priced as well. The cost of one bottle ranges from $8.99-$10.99 for 1.5L size and $4.99-$5.99 for 750ml. They were first introduced into the US market in the 1990’s and they’ve skyrocketed in popularity over the last 20 years. I’m thrilled to have discovered them so we can try all their amazing drink recipes. You can check out a video of the recipe below:

Here are the step by steps on how we made our lovely drinks.

Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot-After-Midnight-Drink-Ingredients

First we got out ingredients together which include:

  • Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
  • Blackberries
  • 2-3 Slices of Ginger
  • Simple Syrup
  • Muddler (The Stick You Use To Mash Ingredients Together)
  • Soda Water
  • Ice
  • Bowl

Then you cut up your 2-3 slices of ginger and combine it in a bowl with your 4-5 Blackberries and Simple Syrup. You muddle them all together in a bowl.


I added the muddled mixture to my glasses and then added the soda water.


I then added the wine and ice to complete the drink.


I basically followed the simple ingredients and directions of the video to make the drink. It was very simple and easy to make.


The amount of the ingredients makes two drinks easily.


I added some drink stirrers to give it a little pretty finishing touch.


These drinks are absolutely perfect for the summer. They are the perfect combination of wine and cocktail. How fabulous does this drink look?! Too fabulous!


They are perfect for the every day BBQ or even an upscale dinner party with friends and family! Anyone who sips on this delightful drink recipe will surely thank you for introducing them to it. I know what we’ll be sipping on this Summer.
