It’s almost the Fourth of July! It’s also hot as eff here on the West Coast, and what better way to celebrate the 4th and the heat than with white wine spritzers? Raspberries and blueberries (the obligatory 4th of July berries) make these festive and only a little dangerous to have around.
These are super easy and quick to make for your party or BBQ. You could make a pitcher of this with equal parts wine and seltzer and I wouldn’t judge you if you made a pitcher just for yourself. Maybe you have a lot of celebrating to do because it’s America’s birthday as well as your mother’s (happy birthday mom! I won’t drink a whole pitcher of spritzers on your birthday but I promise nothing for a pitcher of margaritas).
Ingredients – makes one 6oz spritzer
- a small handful of blueberries or raspberries
- a pinch of refined sugar
- 3oz white wine (I used a pinot grigio)
- 3oz seltzer
- a couple ice cubes
Muddle the berries and sugar in an 8oz glass. Add the wine, seltzer and ice and stir. Um, that’s it. Enjoy!
