A wine cocktail recipe is when you use wine as one of the ingredients in a cocktail. Yes, I know the name wine cocktail is the giveaway. You would be surprised at how many do not realize you need wine for a wine cocktail.
I have a fondness for cherry wine. I had some cherry wine when I went to a wine tasting a few years ago. That cherry wine drink was so yummy, I think I drank the whole bottle of it!

So how did I get inspired for this Dark Cherry Fireside Cider? Well, sort of from my sister. You see she too is really into wine. So she has been visiting wineries in PA. She found a recipe for winter cocktails at one of the wineries.
Cherry Cider Recipe
At one of the wineries, they gave her a slow cooker wine cocktail recipe. She made it on Thanksgiving for my family and turned out very good. Of course, my sister gave me the recipe.
I decided to change that wine cocktail up a little. I turned it into a cherry cider recipe. This fireside cider was amazing with the changes I made to it.
