It is fitting that wine follows water, if only for alphabetical consistency. Wine has been with us nearly as long as water, but in all that time, no one has attempted to change wine into water. Although not often thought about, wine is the basis for many standard cocktails. Vermouth, Lillet, sherry, and champagne are all technically wine. Young strong wine, which is often heavy on its own, is an excellent partner for juices, soda, and fruit for long, cool drinks. In fact, the earliest wine was always mixed with water, and the ancient Greeks had specific vessels for water, wine, and mixing.


Pour the Chardonnay and orange juice over ice in a chilled collins glass. Stir with a long spoon, and float the Galliano on top.
