No matter how where you are in the world, it’s most definitely wine season. I’ve spent the past couple of days exploring Napa and the Sonoma coasts talking terroire and vintages, while the rest of the team back home has been playing around with something a little more experimental. Introducing, our take on the perfect winter red wine spritzer!
Made with absolutely no sugar (thanks to Zevia!), fresh fruit, and a bold red wine, this cocktail is as delicious as it is gorgeous, and it won’t even mess with your healthy living 2017 resolutions!

The first step to create this sugar-free spritzer is to prepare your wine ice cubes overnight. Choose a red wine with an alcohol content around 10-13%, dilute the wine with a bit of water to help the freezing process, we used a 3:1 wine:water ratio. For an extra berry twist try adding some blackberries to the mould.
For an extra frosty effect, place your empty glasses in the freezer for 15-20 mins before serving.
Remove your red wine cubes from their mould and add to each frosted glass. Now simply pour Zevia blackberry sparkling water overtop and watch the magic happen. Finish it off with some blackberries and you’re ready to enjoy!
