Holiday Wine Spritzer

When you are putting on a dinner as big as a Thanksgiving feast, sometimes the smaller details can get overlooked. Beverages and cocktails are usually the very last thing on my mind when I’m trying to time a turkey with all of the fixings properly and coordinate all of the other sides and helpers to go along with it.

This holiday wine spritzer is easy, delicious, and would make a beautiful addition to your holiday table. You can make a batch without the wine for the kids to enjoy, and the adults will love this sweet festive treat.

Use a good quality chardonnay for this. The rest of the ingredients are fairly sweet, so make sure the wine you choose isn’t too sweet or it will overwhelm the drink. Chardonnay was a perfect balance of crisp and light for this, or for just sipping on its own. I really enjoyed how refreshing it was.

Use a combination of fresh and frozen fruit in your spritzer. By using frozen fruit and chilled ingredients you can eliminate the need to use ice that will water down your drinks.

This doesn’t really taste like alcohol, so make sure it is labeled appropriately. You wouldn’t want anyone who doesn’t drink mistaking this for a non-alcoholic version!

I will be whipping up a pitcher of this for the next get-together I host!

Do you put the lemon slices in or the juice for the lemon?

Nicole Johnson

I did a little of both. This is a really flexible recipe and would be fantastic either way.

What type of white wine would you suggest?! Other than dry of course.

Nicole Johnson

I like Pinot Grigio, a lot, for this kind of thing. There are so many that would work though. I've even use sparkling wine, sweeter whites like Riesling, Moscato, or Gewurtztraminer.

If I needed to make this alcohol free and then people could add alcohol on the side would you just suggest making it without wine and adding wine in your own glass?

I think that would work pretty well!
