What’s the best wine to drink during summer? Some might argue it’s all about rosé, while others might insist any wine used in sangria is the best. And then there are those who go so far as to say it doesn’t really matter, as long as there is booze and ice; all wine is summer wine.

Well, I’m happy to say we’ve found a happy medium between all three of these answers. The ultimate summer wine cooler is a delicate balance of different wines. It will keep you cool all summer long, and the recipe might just surprise you.

The ultimate summer wine cooler is simple. In order to make the drink, you need to fill a large ice cube tray with any red, white, and rosé wine you have around the house. When it’s frozen, pop an equal amount of each type of wine ice cube into a wine glass and cover it with champagne. If you’re feeling extra fancy (and I hope you are), top the drink with a maraschino cherry. Ta-da!

It might not be the most delicious drink you’ve ever had, but it will keep you cool and fashionable when you’re hanging out by the pool.
