Elderflower Rosé Wine Spritzer
Rosé season is here and what better time to make this simple but beautiful cocktail recipe? A rosé wine spritzer is the perfect drink to sip on hot summer days. This is a refreshingly light cocktail that has quickly become one of my favorite drinks during summertime! It’s about the only time you can drink your wine with ice without getting a side eye, lol!
What is in a wine spritzer?
A wine spritzer cocktail is a mixture of flat or sparkling wine topped with club soda or seltzer water and a spritz of fresh citrus juice. It is a drink that you can easily sip on all day long and is so refreshing during the summer months. Although, I definitely don’t reserve rosé wine spritzers for just summertime!
For this version of a classic wine spritzer, I am using a dry rosé wine and elderflower liqueur. This is one of my favorite combinations and if you haven’t tried elderflower syrup before, you are in for a treat! This liqueur is slightly sweet with a subtle honey flavor. I love to add a splash to a champagne cocktail as well!
Rosé Cocktail Recipe
