Skinny Sangria Spritzer Recipe

sangriaspitzer.jpg

 “skinny” sangria? It’s usually full of sugar and fruit juice! I’ve come up with a much healthier version of this classic summer-y sipper. The star is a full-bodied antioxidant-rich red...and we can’t wait for you to meet and take it for a taste test! Your health may thank you.

Ingredients:

(Serves 6)

  • 1 bottle dry red wine (use your favourite but consider seeking out an organic variety = no sulphites or other congenors/additives)

  • 1 ½ cups seltzer (you can use a fruit flavoured variety, if desired - but no sugar added)

  • 2 cups assorted fresh fruit, such as sliced strawberries, blackberries, orange slices, chopped apples, pears, or plums (have fun mix and matching your favourites!)

  • ice cubes

 

How to prepare:

  1.  Place prepared fruit in bottom of a large pitcher and lightly muddle with a wooden spoon.

  2. Pour wine and seltzer into pitcher and stir to combine.

  3. Add 1 cup of ice to pitcher and stir to chill.

  4. To serve, pour Skinny Sangria over ice-filled glasses. Be sure each glass gets a spoonful of fruit!
