Holiday White Wine Spritzer



Baby, it’s cold outside. You could warm up by the fire, but who needs firewood when you have booze? Whether you live in a snow globe or in a postcard-esque scene, everyone could use a little liquid Christmas cheer. Here’s a cranberry-spiked cocktail that will have you signing fa la la la la all holiday season.


Here’s what you need



1 bottle of white wine (we love Francis Ford Coppola Sauvignon Blanc for this recipe)

2 1/2 cups of cranberry juice

1 can or 12 oz of seltzer water, club soda or your favorite sparkling water

1 orange, sliced

2 cups of fresh cranberries

sprigs of fresh rosemary for garnish




  • Combine all ingredients except rosemary in a serving pitcher
  • Save some cranberries for garnish
  • Chill until serving


Pour it up

Once chilled, fill a highball glass with ice. Add the chilled drink, leave some room at the top. Optionally, for some sparkle and fizz, top with more seltzer water. Garnish with cranberries and a sprig of rosemary. Serve and enjoy the holidays!
