Wine Spritzer

Guess who forgot to blog yesterday!  Yup, you guessed it, this girl.

Ever hear of a wine spritzer?  It has got to be my all time favourite summer beverage.  I absolutely love wine and when you add a carbonated beverage (tonic water) to it, it just gets better!  Throw in a couple slices of lemon and lime and you're set.


Wine Spritzer

Use about half tonic water, half wine, and one slice of a lemon and a lime.
This is also really yummy with frozen strawberries!  Then you get to eat the strawberries after.

So far my favourite type of wine to make this with is Reisling but I have also done it with Pinot Grigio which I also found delicious.  Best part?  For some reason the tonic water ensures I'm not hungover the next morning!  And it's not because I am drinking less wine, it's just something in the tonic water that does it!

Let me know if you try it!

xo, Meg

Totally agree with you...and less calories than my personal favorite summer drink, a strawberry daiquiri :D

We buy cheap sangria, sprite, and orange slices and put it all together for our spritzers!
