Pull up a chair and get ready to relax because this Strawberry Moscato Wine Spritzer is a refreshing summertime cocktail perfect for leisurely sipping.
When I posted my Strawberry Kale Salad a little over a week ago, I promised a few other recipes featuring one of my favorite in-season berries. I also promised that one of those recipes would be a cocktail. In case you missed it, I delivered with a delicious Strawberries and Cream Scones recipe and now I’m here to fulfill my promise of an adult beverage.
Enter – Strawberry Moscato Wine Spritzer. I love, love, love wine spritzers. They’re the perfect summertime cocktail. Wine spritzers are so refreshing and completely customizable (that’s a word, right?). You can use your favorite white wine, red wine or even sparkling wine. You can mix them with juice, citrus based soda, club soda, whatever. See where I’m going here? It is what you make it!
You can also use whatever fruit you want – raspberries, blackberries, peaches, a combination of fruit – it’s totally up to you.
Today, I chose strawberries. There’s really nothing quite like fresh, in-season strawberries. They’re juicy, sweet and spectacular. To make my wine spritzer, I chose Moscato wine and 7Up. Moscato wine is one of my favorite wines to use for wine spritzers because it’s light, crisp and a little sweet. It pairs perfectly with a lemon-lime soda and fresh strawberries.
On hot summer days the last thing I want to drink is something heavy, which is why these strawberry Moscato wine spritzers are perfect for sipping, lounging, hanging with your pals and all-day drinking.
Did I mention they’re also incredibly easy to make? These wine spritzers have just 3 ingredients, not including ice. That’s it! So pop that cork, get your sweet strawberries, top with your fizzy, citrus-y soda, ice it down and bottoms up.
