I am not a genius at entertaining, baking, cooking, or cleaning. I’m not a genius at culinary masterpieces. But…I AM a genius at pretending. People come to my house for parties and get-togethers and think that I am the most awesome cleaner, baker, chef, and entertainer. I have them tricked! When it comes to entertaining and hosting I have found that I simply need to learn a few really great and easy recipes. A few really great and easy treats. And a few really great and easy drinks. Like this wine spritzer. Learn those few things and I can fake my way through a successful party. Like a genius!
This wine spritzer is so quick and easy to make you NEED to have it in your back pocket for parties. It’s just one of those drinks that tricks people into thinking you are super awesome in the kitchen. Simple ingredients, simple instructions…so great! And, of course the secret for these is using frozen fruit in place of ice. Easy peasy! You could go out and get all sorts of supplies and pay big bucks for tons of alcohol to make crazy drinks…but wouldn’t you rather do something simple and delicious that people are going to love anyway?
Quick video tutorial for you to make your own…
And, if you don’t have time to watch the 3 minute video (really, who does these days) the recipe just below…
- wine very cold!
- sparkling water or club soda very cold!
- frozen fruit
- Fill the glass with frozen fruit.
- Fill the glass halfway with wine.
- Fill the remainder with club soda.
- Stir gently.
And, if you let the fruit sit for a bit...it just makes the drink better!
Perhaps you are an entertaining genius…go you!! But, perhaps you are like me and just need to know a few great tricks. This drink needs to go into your vault. No need to freak out the next time you entertain! You got this!
