Alot of times, if a bottle of red wine sits open for a couple of days, I find the flavor has changed and I don't enjoy it as much. Instead of throwing it out, I like to make wine spritzers instead. Instead of using ginger ale or seltzer, I really like them made with Fresca. Freshens up the wine and is really tasty! Add more or less Fresca for your tastes. Great for summer evenings on the deck.
- 4 ounces red wine
- 4 ounces Fresca soda
- Mix red wine and Fresca together over ice.
I often make this using a blackberry merlot and Diet 7-up. Tastes great!
It's almost a sangria to me. I didn't think it would be so good. I used grapefruit fresca. Thanks Kim. Made for Gimme 5 tag game
This was a different way to enjoy wine. As I dry wine fan, I still prefer using club soda for these, but my sweet wine/cocktail loving friends really seemed to enjoy them. Spritzers in general are a great way to enjoy a glass of wine while saving calories, so I've always been a fan.
