White Wine Spritzer with Peach


On the phone:

Jeremy: I'm headed to the liquor store to pick up some beer. There's only one in the fridge, so I didn't know If you wanted one or not?

I'm not going to tell you it wasn't "real" beer he intended to pick up, but O'Doul's- whoops! I just told you.

Me: No, I'm good, I'm drinking a wine spritzer

Jeremy: (chuckle) a wine spritzer?

Me: Yes


Jeremy: That's so 1982

Au Contraire. I think it's making a comeback. That's what I think, and I'm sticking to it. And really, why shouldn't it? It's a fab way to cut calories, stretch a drink and still enjoy a refreshing beverage without noticing either. A spritzer is just a 5oz glass of a fruity white wine such as pinot grigo (but really, it can be anything) served over ice with a nice splash of club soda. I like to up the ante with a slice of fresh peach and any of the juice that happens to go with it. I like to drink this on Monday nights. I know this because it's Monday night and I'm currently drinking this, while blogging and making dinner. I knew I had to be good at some sort of multitasking.


One wine spritzer = 120 calories. Get on this shiz-nit. Let's bring back 1982.

White Wine Spritzer with Peach

5 oz fruity white wine, such as Pinot Grigio
Ice cubes
