5 Days of Pinterest: Christmas Spritzer

xmasspritzer

As a complete Pinterest addict, nothing frustrates me more than pinning something only to find it leads to a dead end source. In fact, Alison from Long Distance Loving wrote a whole article on how to effectively clean up your Pinterest account (read it) and ever since reading it I have been much more conscious of what I re-pin. Nontheless, this pin slipped through the cracks. So I was left with the desire to make this delicious spritzer, yet had no recipe to follow. Lucky for you guys, the ingredients were listed in the pin and in a moment of bravery I decided to wing it and hope for the best.

In hopes that you’ll all pin this post to your own boards, here is my (not so formal) recipe for “Christmas” Spritzers (unfortunately there is nothing Christmas about these, other than the fact the drink is red).

Shopping list:
– Package of 4 187 ml bottles of white zinfandel (you can find these small bottles at most grocery stores)
– Sprite
– Vodka
– Diced strawberries

When I said I was going to “wing it” I wasn’t lying. I didn’t measure anything but instead did guesswork (fancy, I know). The majority of the drink is the white zinfandel, so I used 3/4 of a bottle for each drink. I topped it off with a dash of sprite and vodka, ice, and about 2 diced strawberries. The result is a beautiful, light and refreshing cold drink that would be great served with appetizers on Christmas day.

What’s your go to holiday drink?

      Thanks girl! I was pretty nervous to see how it came out but it was delicious. Light and fruity and perfect for the holidays (or anytime, really). Hope you had a great holiday.

      Thanks Jen! Our Christmas was great but a snowstorm cancelled our flights so we stayed with John’s family 3 extra days. It was nice to spend extra time with family but Bally was in a kennel and we missed her SO much. It’s good having her back home (and she is enjoying all of her new presents).

        Oh no, that’s too bad! In one respect it was nice to spend more time with family but in the other it’s sad being away from Bally for three additional days! Happy to hear you made it back home safe after the snowstorm! I’m sure you’re so glad to be back in sunny Florida after that 😉

    I really need to be more aware of what I pin. I tend to get so excited over the image that I just hit that little button without checking it out. Then I get upset when I go back to it for the source later on!

      Haha, I am the same way! Sometimes a pretty picture leads to a dead end source on Pinterest. I’m trying to be better and check the source before I pin. At least I was able to make this anyway, and create a NOT dead end source for it on Pinterest. 🙂

      Thank you Ani! We had a wonderful holiday and it was nice to take a break and relax with family. Let me know what you think if you try it…it is a perfect drink for this time of year but would be great for summertime too. Happy New Year!

      I know, I need to do the same! I know it will be a time consuming project but worth it in the end. PS, so happy to see you back on the blogosphere. I have missed your posts!
