Wine Spritzers–A Sparkly Sip of Wonderful

Standard

Sometimes it’s really easy to make something a little wee bit healthier–and still really enjoy the delicacy.

I have a few tricks I use to stay somewhat healthy and still enjoy the things I love.

For example, I love wine, but I honestly can’t drink that much of it….if I drink too much wine I fall asleep–and generally I work at night after dinner as well. So, if I feel like it, I make wine spritzers.

All you need is:

1. Wine
2. Seltzer

And it’s light and delicious especially in the summer when it gets hot! And of course I buy sparkling water from Trader Joe’s….and I generally like Pinot Noir–because it’s sweet….often described as having flavors of dark berries and cherry. Yum. Actually according to Wikipedia the name Pinot Noir is derived from the French words for “pine” and “black” alluding to the grape variety’s tightly clustered dark purple pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit.

There are ways to indulge without throwing your New Year’s Resolution out the window.

Cheers!
