How to Make A Classic White Wine Spritzer

Cool and refreshing, a classic white wine spritzer is simple and sophisticated. Here’s how to make it.

Summer’s here and there’s nothing I enjoy more than a refreshing white wine spritzer.

Let’s make one …

I’m a lightweight when it comes to alcohol, so a spritzer is the ideal option and my go-to cocktail.

There are as many versions of a spritzer as your imagination allows.

Here’s my recipe for a Classic White Wine Spritzer.

Classic White Wine Spritzer, serves 1

4 oz white wine, chilled
4oz fizzy water
Lime wheel

Pour chilled wine and fizzy water into a glass.

Add ice if you like.

Garnish with a slice of lime.

When it comes to fizzy water, I prefer sparkling water, but soda water or a flavored sparking water are also great options.

Refreshing and light … a Classic White Wine Spritzer is a perfect year-round cocktail.

Regarding garnishes, let the characteristics of your wine choice dictate the appropriate garnish. I love a dry, citrusy Sauvignon Blanc which pairs well with lemon or lime garnish. Don’t get caught up in all the wine snobbery gobbleygook … garnish with impunity. Citrus wheels, strawberries, Martha Stewart suggests melon balls and she’d never steer us wrong.

  • Hi Juliet,
    My drink of choice when we are out is usually a white wine spritzer! Amazing how many times I’ve had to describe exactly what I want to the server!! (Don’t get me started on what usually happens when I order a Kir Royale!)
    Good job on the new blog, and looking forward to reading more! You look so pretty in all the photos, your color scheme suites you so well!

    • Heidi – you’re so sweet, thank you. My husband works in the wine industry. I used to as well. People are so snobby about wine and for so long I was embarrassed to order a spritzer. Then one day I said … no more … who cares what they think! Make mine a spritzer! And, that is how I got my name. Now, tell me … what do they do to mangle your Kir Royale?! xo

  • You are going to laugh, but I forgot how much I enjoy a wine spritzer because it is such a light option, and limes are a must! I am having a social distanced girls get together tomorrow afternoon, and guess what I’m bringing!

  • No, I didn’t know you were starting a blog on home design. The site is well done and has plenty of photos to help us see the results of your work and color selections. Great job!
