About Red Wine Spritzer
Red Wine Spritzer is a refreshing cocktail recipe where red wine is mixed with club soda. It is the perfect drink to make when you want to sip on sangria but have a time crunch.
I love the fizz soda adds to the wine, which makes this drink different. Add a few orange peels and mint leaves before serving, and have a fancy cocktail ready.
So, try this spritzer next time you want to add a little bubbly twist to your red wine. These are perfect to serve for summer brunches, house parties, or special occasions.
If you are looking for more drink options for your parties, try these, too.
Red Wine – You can use any red wine to make this spritzer. The better your wine is, the better the taste of your spritzer.
Club Soda – Club soda adds perfect fizz to the wine and dilutes it to 25 to 50 percent.
Orange Peels and Mint – To garnish the wine spritzer, use some orange peels and mint leaves. They add a refreshing flavor. If not peels, thin, round orange slices work well for garnishing.
Ice Cubes are required to make the cocktail chilled.
Make variations by adding lemon juice, flavored simple syrups, or bitters to this cocktail. You can replace club soda with ginger ale, sprite, or sparkling water.
You can also add in some berries like raspberries or blueberries.

Note – If making the drink for a crowd, make it in a pitcher.
Frequently Asked Questions
The wine and soda ratio for a red wine spritzer is equal parts wine and club soda. If you like your spritzer to have more fizz, you can also increase the quantity of soda.
I like to make it with Merlot. But the wine with the best aroma, fruit flavors, and mild tannins, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Grenache, tastes the best. If these are unavailable, you can select any good wine to make the spritzer.
Yes, definitely! But the ratio will change when you are using white wine. This version uses 3 parts wine and one part soda, which is in a 3:1 ratio.
