Strawberry Wine Spritzer

This is such a simple drink, but so delicious!  I’m a fan of the spritzer. I’m  not sure if that makes me lame or tacky or what. I just know is that this is delicious. And has bubbles. Basically, it is a fizzy fake sangria. The basil is pretty and adds more scent than flavor. Mint would work, too. It is also a great way to use up wine you are less than thrilled with. I used a blush (which is why it is pink, not the strawberries), but I’m sure a pinot grigio would work well too. Turtle time! I really wanted to get the Ramona pinot grigio (from the Real Housewives of NY, for those of you with lives…), but can’t find it anywhere. Has anyone had it?

Strawberry Wine Spritzer (per glass)
1 strawberry, sliced and stem/hull removed
2 ounces of wine (I used Coppola Sofia)
1 ounce club soda
2 small basil leaves (or one large) (don’t use dried basil) (ew)

Directions: Put it all in a glass. Slurp it down. Repeat.

This makes me laugh:

Danger! Danger! Todzilla!

    ooh! This looks yummy.

    I might have to try it this weekend. And I might try mint instead of basil.

    And I definitely will not be measuring.

  2. I am so making one or MANY of those TONIGHT!
    Strawberries, check (damn Farmers Market strawberries last only 3 days)
    Basil, check (damn plant grows as fast as a weed)
    Mint, check (see Basil)

    Cannot wait to get that in my mouth!

    I can just imagine someone putting dried basil in their spritzer. And Hershey’s Strawberry syrup instead of real strawberry. WHAT, IT’S THE SAME THING!

    When I was little, I couldn’t wait to grow up so I could drink spritzers like my mom. Now we make easy ones with (any) white wine, 7up & a lemon wedge. I’m totally trying this one tonight. I’m pretty sure I have basil ready to go in the back yard :)
