What Is a Spritzer?
Spritzer is the German word for a chilled drink, usually made with white wine and sparkling water. It’s as simple as that.
Its relatively low alcohol content makes it a popular summer drink in European countries such as Austria and Hungary. In the latter country, a Spritzer is called “fröccs” and is sold premixed in a can.
In some German regions, such as Hessen, this drink is called “Süssgespritzter”, which basically means “sweet spritzer”. This sweet spritzer is usually made with carbonated lemonade instead of sparkling water. Does that sound interesting? Check out our Lemonade Spritzer Recipe!

Tips for a Delicious White Wine Spritzer
Even though making this drink is super simple, there are still some things to keep in mind and make your spritzer even better.
White wine may become flat and flabby if served too warm, so to acquire the optimal taste, make sure all ingredients are chilled before making your drink. You could even chill the glass too!
In case you’re using an orange peel to decorate your glass, make sure there’s not too much pith on the inside, as this could make your drink taste bitter.
You could squeeze the orange peel slightly to release its oils before adding it to your glass. This will add a fruity touch to your white wine spritzer.
How to Make a White Wine Spritzer
Some recipes require an extensive explanation, but this is definitely not one of them. Making this white wine spritzer couldn’t be any easier, but I’ll tell you anyway.
In a glass of your choice, add the white wine and top it off with the soda water. Feel free to play around with the wine-soda water ratio to see how you like it best.
Take a rectangular piece of orange peel and make sure you’ve removed most of the pith. Be sure not to remove too much because the pith also gives a bit of sturdiness to the peel. Slightly twist it to release some of the oils before adding it to your glass.
