I'm not a wine snob. I'll happily drink an $8 bottle of white without complaint unless it's awfully oaky or sickly sweet. Then I'll scrunch up my nose and wine whine until somebody refills my glass.
I also enjoy a spritzer—the usual kind, soda and wine over ice. These wine spritzers make a refreshing, alcohol and calorie-wise alternative to a regular glass of wine.
This summer my sister in law introduced me to a new way to spritz. She calls this drink "The Pink Lady." Sure, it's not as calorie friendly as its traditional spritzer sister and it *may* be a titch boozier, but it's goooooood. And the recipe is so simple it'll make your cheeks blush pink.
Why partake in a Pink Lady?
Fill a glass with ice.
Fill 3/4 with white wine.
Top with your choice of carbonated wine or vodka cooler. The kind you buy in a can. We used the Palm Bay Ruby Grapefruit and it was delightful.
Garnish with whatever fruit you have around. I recommend a sliced strawberry stolen from your child's dinner plate.
Cheers! Looking good, Pink Lady!
