Wine cocktails are light and easy drinks. Mixing up a small batch of sangria or a wine spritzer is a great way to use up an open bottle of wine.
For a refreshing spritzer, combine rose wine with orange liqueur, carbonated water, orange bitters and fresh lemon.
Rose Wine Spritzer Recipe
4 ounces rose wine, chilled (I used a Cabernet Franc rose)
1/2 ounce orange liqueur such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier
Few dashes orange bitters
1 ounce sparkling water, chilled
In a glass filled with ice combine chilled rose wine, orange liqueur and orange bitters. Top with sparkling water; garnish with lemon slices.
