Let The Good Times Flow
Some days just call for a nice drink!
In the fall, I tend to reach for cinnamon apple cocktails to provide warmth and comfort. On sweltering summer days, you can always find a glass of cold lemonade in my hand! (No alcohol needed, but is always a nice touch 😉)
This raspberry red wine spritzer is made for every day between.
Use your favorite red wine, a seltzer or soda of your choice, and whichever berries you have in the fridge. (Blueberries and blackberries are great options here)
Sip back and smile as you enjoy this easily crafted spritzer.
How to: Make A Raspberry Red Wine Spritzer
All good wine starts with a spunky glass!
Gather a few glasses and place 2-3 raspberries in the bottom of each. Using a spoon, carefully muddle the raspberries until a lot of their juices have been released.
If you desire a cooler drink, fill with ice cubes. Otherwise, enjoy your wine drink at the optimal temperature of 55° (or if you’re lazy like me, at room temperature).
Stir in wine, seltzer, and orange bitters. Top off each drink with a sprig of rosemary and additional raspberries on top.
