This is such a refreshing summer drink and it has a lot of character with its slight fizz, tasty, pretty blood orange and just enough sour from the lime. Mmm… mmm… good!
I love this drink for socializing because with a glass of just wine I tend to drink more, this way I can enjoy something to drink without getting too buzzed too fast : D
Here is what Wikipedia has to say “The word comes from the German spritzen “spatter, squirt, spray, sprinkle”, i.e. adding water and thus diluting the wine so that it can be consumed in larger, thirst-quenching amounts.”
Recipe: 1 Glass
- 1/2 Cup Dry White Wine (I used white Rioja)
- 1/2 Cup Sparkling Water (I used Pellegrino)
- 1/4 Cup Blood Orange Juice
- 1 Tablespoon Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
- Blood Orange Slice For Garnish
- Ice (Optional)
Juice the blood orange with an orange juicer into a small bowl and the lime in another small bowl.
Put an ice cube into your glass and measure out all the ingredients into your glass and top with a slice of the blood orange.
