Drew Barrymore's wine lifts spirits

A few months ago, I introduced you to Drew Barrymore's new wine line, remember? Well, that girl isn't going anywhere anytime soon. As some swoon over her beautiful baby Olive, others are all like, "Can I get a couple more of these [olives] in my drink?"

Here are two succulent drink recipes that utilize her wine:

Barrymore Bliss
vodka / raspberries  / lemon juice / agave / ginger beer / Barrymore wine

Build : In a shaker tin add raspberries and muddle. Then add 1/2 lemon juice, 3/4 agave, 3/4 vodka, and 2 oz Barrymore.  Add ice and shake. Strain into a tall glass and top with ginger beer and garnish with lemon wheel.

Cupid’s Arrow
Gin/ lavender syrup / blackberries syrup / lemon juice / Barrymore wine / soda water

Build: In a shaker add 1 oz of gin, 3/4 lavender syrup, 3/4 lemon juice, 2 oz Barrymore. Add ice and shake. In a martini glass place 1/4 of blackberry syrup in the bottom of the glass. Then slowly strain your shaker into the glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Can we say YUM?
