Simple and classic, the wine spritzer is a refreshing, bubbly drink that can be enjoyed in a variety of settings. Perfect for outdoor summer barbecues.
With a spritzer, you can customize the flavours you want by selecting a specific type of wine. For a sweeter drink, choose a fruity rosé wine. Then, garnish with sweet fruits like strawberries or orange slices. If you’re craving something a little dryer, consider a white wine like Sauvignon Blanc. Choose a tangy garnish, such as a lemon slice, to top it off.
- 120ml of chilled white or rosé wine
- 60ml of soda water
- Chilled glass filled with ice
- Fruit for garnish
Pour wine and soda water over ice, garnish with fruit and serve immediately.
Wine spritzers are best paired with light foods, such salads. If you’re going with a sweeter, fruitier wine base, a great starter dish could be crisp melon wrapped with tangy Italian prosciutto. For a spritzer made with a dryer, more citrus tasting wine like Sauvignon Blanc, try serving a salad filled with fresh chilled vegetables like asparagus and herbs like dill or coriander.
