Kate's Afternoon Wine Cooler (Zwt - France)

Total Time

Finally Captain Kate! Here I am w/your belated birthday present. This is a little something light I've found refreshing in the afternoon when I'm busy doing my ZWT cooking! It's tasty, goes down really fast & smooth & doesn't cloud your mind when you're measuring ingredients either!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup cranberry juice (sweetened)
  • 12 cup Fresca soda (diet, Sprite or 7-Up work too)
  • 12 cup white wine (I use Riesling)


  1. Combine all ingredients, find yourself a very tall glass, enjoy & then have another!
  2. Note: Sorry about the Riesling, Kate. It's a personal favourite, but you can sub a favourite French choice. :-).

Great, tasty wine cooler!! I am not a big wine drinker, but love to use them in cooking recipes and my sister likes to drink Chardonay and I had some left from her last visit, so I chose to make this drink. It is still quite warm here in Florida, so this was a nice afternoon cooler!! Thanks for sharing the recipe and congrats again on your win in the football pool!!

Wow! What an awesome drink for hot Summer days when you want something great to sip on, but don't want to get wasted. Made it last night & used chardonnay as thats what I usually drink. Made one serving and now I have a pitcher out to triple the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us.

This is a great light and sweet drink! I used diet Sprite, light cranberry juice, and a sweet Riesling. Loved it - thanks for sharing the recipe!
