White Wine: the star of this cocktail is the white wine. We recommend using a cold white wine.
What type of wine you use will determine the overall flavor of your spritzer.
– Pinot grigio: use for a drier and refreshing spritzer
– Sauvignon blanc: use for a crisp and citrus forward spritzer
– Riesling: if you want to add a little sweetness to your spritzer (we used a riesling)
Club Soda or hard seltzer: to get that effervescence that everyone loves in a spritzer we use club soda or hard seltzer. Hear me out. The club soda is for a more basic, wine forward spritzer where the hard seltzer gives you a boozier and more flavorful spritzer.
Keep in mind that what seltzer you choose will affect the flavor of your white wine spritzer.
Citrus: a little lemon juice mixed with the wine and bubbles gives you a refreshing white wine spritzer. Feel free to use lime juice or another fruit juice.
Don’t forget the garnish! When serving your wine spritzer, don’t forget to garnish your drink with fresh fruit or fresh mint. It will take your white wine spritzer to the next level.
