Red Wine Spritzer – a new take on a classic

Red Wine Spritzer - alcohol alternative

If you’re celebrating in a warmer climate – a red wine spritzer is the way to go!

Red wine is more commonly thought of as a winter drink on the Med-style diet, but many lighter reds work really well chilled. By combining wine with sparkling water you’ll get more to drink with less alcohol and sugar and enjoy a lovely refreshing red wine spritzer!

  • 120ml dry red wine, chilled
  • 120ml soda water, chilled
  • orange slices
  • ice (optional)


  1. Pour chilled red into a pretty glass filled with ice, top with soda water and garnish with an orange slice. Enjoy!


  • We’d recommend a lighter red wine that works well chilled – something like a Pinot Noir. 
  • Mix up your garnishes – highlight tasting notes from your wine choice using frozen berries, or sliced apple.
