This holiday wine spritzer is perfect for your holiday table. Wine and soda and cranberries sparkle in this festive fall drink!
When you are putting on a dinner as big as 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. This 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!
Easy, delicious, and festive holiday drink!
