White Wine Spritzer

White wine spritzers originated in Austria, not in the Mediterranean region. However, most Mediterranean countries now have their own variations of the spritzer.

For this basic version, I like to use a white wine from the Mediterranean region, like an oaky Chardonnay or a crisp Pinot Grigio.

This simple wine cocktail is easy to make, and so refreshing on a hot summer day - or anytime! And it is a wonderful complement to many light Mediterranean foods.


Ice (enough to fill glass)
White wine, chilled
Club soda or seltzer, chilled
Lemon or lime wedge or twist (for garnish)

Fill a large wine glass with ice.

Pour the wine into the glass, until the glass is 2/3 full.

Top with the club soda until the glass is full.

Garnish with the lemon or lime.

-- 1 serving
