Spritzer Recipes

Whether you're looking to host a party or just kick back on your patio with a cool drink in hand, spritzer recipes always come in handy.

A spritzer is a drink made up of an alcoholic beverage (usually wine), a carbonated beverage, and optional additional flavors. You can also make a non-alcoholic version out of a carbonated beverage and fruit juice. The drink is light and refreshing, and perfect for a hot summer day.

To make a spritzer, you will need:

  • White or blush wine, such as White Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, or Pinot Grigio
  • A carbonated beverage, such as a light-flavored soda (7-Up, Sprite, or ginger ale), soda water, or seltzer
  • Ice
  • Fruit juice, such as cranberry, blueberry, pomegranate, or apple (optional)
  • Fruit slices for garnishing (optional)
  • Pitcher or cocktail shaker
  • Glasses for serving

  • 1 part wine
  • 2 parts carbonated beverage
  • Ice

Stir ingredients with ice in a glass. Adjust the proportions to taste. Garnish with a lime or lemon slice if desired.

Spritzer with Fruit Juice Recipe

  • 1 part wine
  • 2 parts carbonated beverage
  • 2 parts fruit juice
  • Ice

Stir ingredients with ice in a glass or pitcher. Alternately, mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Adjust the proportions to taste. Garnish glasses with a fruit slice, if desired.

Non-Alcoholic Spritzer Recipe

You might want to enjoy a tasty spritzer without the extra buzz. Making a non-alcoholic spritzer can be a great way to enjoy a satisfying drink without all of the added sugar of many sodas and juices.

  • 1 part carbonated beverage
  • 2 parts 100% fruit juice
  • Ice
  1. Stir ingredients in a glass or pitcher.
  2. Adjust the proportions to taste.
  3. Use fruit slices to garnish glasses, if desired.

Tip: Try different types of white or blush wines to find the one that works best for your spritzer. Some people prefer to use a dry white wine, while others like a sweeter version.
