I rarely drink anything besides red wine because most mixed drinks are full of extra sugar and empty calories. That being said, when you're a red wine drinker, it's tough to find a nice day-time drink or cool summer cocktail.
Sooooo . . . My new, signature spring cocktail is stupid simple and back-yard, BBQ approved. There are three ingredients - red wine, soda, and frozen berries. You can do a soda water or lemon lime soda depending on your sweet tooth. I like to infuse the spritzer with a mix of crushed ice and frozen berries to offer a beautiful display and naturally, sweetened flavor.
How cute are these DIY Bohemian Coasters?!?
