Very Berry Basil Wine Spritzer

Very Berry Basil Wine Spritzer

Soooo I found another use for that wonderful Very Berry Syrup from the Very Berry Italian Cream Sodas. Add it to a little white wine with some club soda and it makes a really nice refreshing spritzer. The thing that makes this magic is really the syrup, which has two kinds of berries and a bunch of basil in it, along with a splash of vanilla. It’s delightful.

This is what I was sipping on as I was grilling up the pizzas last night …

Very Berry Basil Wine Spritzers

  • White wine (I used Pinot Grigio)
  • Very berry syrup (recipe here)
  • Club soda
  • Ice cubes
  • Garnish: basil leaves and/or edible flowers like violets

Fill a wine glass about 1/2 full of wine, add a few ice cubes and a teaspoon or two of the very berry syrup. Taste it to see if it’s to your liking, and add wine or a bit more syrup to adjust to the level of sweetness you want, then add a splash of club soda (for the bubbles!) and garnish with flowers and/or basil leaves.
