Need a light and refreshing cocktail? This white wine spritzer pairs grapefruit with sweet Moscato for easy drinking any time of year!
Ever since we were gifted a Soda Stream by one of Kevin’s very generous coworkers, I’ve been all in on spritzers. I’ve always enjoyed a splash of club soda in my cocktails, like my skinny iced tea vodka, but now I don’t have to run to the store for cocktail hour to get bubbly!
So, I thought I’d whip up a white wine spritzer recipe. I decided to pair it with another new fave, Deep Eddy’s grapefruit vodka. I absolutely love this liquor because it’s packed with real grapefruit. It’s tart, just a little sweet and the color is gorgeous!
Because grapefruit vodka is so crisp, I went with a sweet white wine. We taste tested the recipe using Donna Isabella Sparkling Moscato and Kendall Jackson Vinter’s Reserve Riesling. The moscato made a sweeter cocktail while the riesling version was more tart, but both were great!
This cocktail is crisp, refreshing and so easy! It’s the kind of drink that’s great for busy weeknights, impromptu guests or porch sipping. Because it’s currently winter, I garnished my drink with a fresh slice of grapefruit (citrus is in season after all) and a sprig of rosemary which makes it feel more like a winter cocktail.
How to make a white wine spritzer
First, you’ll need a large wine glass that holds 12 ounces of liquid or more. Then drop in some ice cubes.
Pour a shot of grapefruit vodka over the ice.
Add 6 ounces of sweet white wine. If you like things extra bubbly, go for a sparkling wine…
Garnish with a slice of grapefruit and a sprig of rosemary.
Then top with 3-4 ounces of club soda. No stirring necessary!
That’s it! Super easy and totally delicious!
