Here's a red wine variation that I also enjoy:
Prep your glass with ice and add some berries. Fill your shaker glass with 2.5-3 oz. of red wine and add:
-1 oz. Strawberry syrup
-1 oz. Pomegranate Ginger syrup
-1/2 oz. Black Cherry juice
-1 oz. Passion Fruit juice
-Fortify with 1/2 oz. Raspberry Vodka and squeeze in half a lemon.
Shake it up and strain out into your glass, top with soda water.
