Raspberry Wine Spritzer

It's hot and the Raspberries are ready.

Need a drink that will cut the calories, reduce your alcohol consumption, and help you stay cool in the summer heat...yes please! I've discovered that many of my friends are unfamiliar with this classic hot weather drink, so lets bring the spritzers back! 

From the Raspberry Capital of Canada, here is a lovely refreshing drink to keep you cool through this heatwave.

Raspberry Wine Spritzer

Ice Cubes (about 1/2 cup)
10 Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
6 oz (3/4 cup) White Wine (your favourite, I like Gehringer Brother's Gewrztraminer-Schonburger from Oliver, BC)
6 oz (3/4 cup) Lemon-Lime Soda (Sprite/7up - diet works too!)

Combine in a large glass and mix well until raspberries break up a bit and release some juice/colour. 

Sip and enjoy!
