White Wine Spritzer
Now on to the Tangerine White Wine Spritzer. Not much to it really. Make sure the wine and soda your using is super cold. In fact, the colder the better and ice is a must here too. Spritzers are meant to be served icy cold, making them refreshing and irresistible. We used a Late Harvest Riesling, from Columbia Valley which has a sweet, balanced flavors of apricot, orange zest and honeyed lemon. The sparkling water we used is a tangerine-flavored sparkling water.
