Red Wine Spritzers!

Do you know what today is?   Yes…today is FRIDAY (TGIF!)…it is also May 21, 2010…my husband’s 30th birthday.  And that is reason to celebrate!

Happy Birthday Buddy!  Remember when we were turning 16 & 17….seems like yesterday.  🙂


And now…here we are…moving into yet another decade.  Enjoy your weekend in DC & I look forward to celebrating with you when you return!  CHEERS!




Speaking of “Cheers”…I intend to celebrate Ryan’s birthday and the beautiful forecast (Saturday:  Mostly Sunny & 82 degrees!) with a Red Wine Spritzer…or 2!  Ahh…they are my favorite.


  • Bottle of Crane Lake Merlot  (Substitute any cheap red wine of your liking)
  • Diet 7Up
  • Lemon

I usually make my Red Wine Spritzers individually, tho you could make them by the pitcher.  Begin by filling your glass with ice.  Squeeze 1/4 of a lemon into the glass.  Pour red wine into glass until 1/2 – 3/4 full.  Top with diet 7Up and garnish with a lemon wedge.

This will be your new favorite summer beverage…I promise.  Enjoy!

Indulge.  In Life.  In Love.  In Food.

  1. Robyn~I have really enjoyed reading your new blog! I remember these wine spritzers from Matt & Sarah’s last summer. I think I might have to make them this weekend also to celebrate the nice weather! I am also looking foward to trying out some of your other recipes! I didn’t know you were such a great cook!
    Take care-

  4. I had some Barefoot Sweet Red blend around the house and was in the mood for a glass this evening. But the wine itself didn’t seem as appealing by itself as it would with say, some sort of juice or carbonated beverage mixed in (spritzer style!). I Googled to see if this was something people normally did, LOL. That is when I found your post!

    After reading it, I opened my fridge to see what I was working with and instantly gravitated to a can of Sprite Zero and a can of Diet Cherry 7-Up. My two favorite sodas! They were perfectly chilled, so I threw together the concoction in your post and my taste buds rejoiced, LOL! At the moment, lets just say I’m on my second one! I have a happy, fruity little buzz going on, but I think this will have to be my last one for tonight. I’m not sloshed by any means. I’m sure if you drank upwards of say, 3, you’d be two sheets to the wind.

    Anyway, thanks for the suggestion! This is my first time checking out your blog and it has definitely been bookmarked!

    BTW.. one more thing about the post…I didn’t have any lemons this time, so next time I’m definitely going to give it a try with that accent. Lemon always does wondrous things for food and drinks alike.
