Make: Valentine’s Day Wine Spritzer

In preparation for Valentines' Day, which is just around the corner, I created this Valentine's Day inspired wine spritzer.

Valentine's Day Wine Spritzer | My Darling Days

We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, but the “Hallmark Holiday” is a nice reminder to give your significant other a little extra love & gratitude.

Our plans include staying in, making dinner together, & sipping this homemade wine spritzer.  We’ll probably end the evening with a movie or board game, and likely be in bed by 9.  We really know how to party these days...


Valentine's Day Wine Spritzer | My Darling Days

To make this festive little beverage, you’ll need:
- 2 wine glasses
- 1 jar with lid
- 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
- Red food coloring
- Wedge of lemon, line, or orange
- Your favorite wine
- Frozen berries (all I had on hand were strawberries)
- Spritz of club soda

Step 1: To make the colored sugar, add sugar to a jar.  Add a couple drops of food coloring, seal the lid, & shake well until the color is evenly dispersed.  The more food coloring you add, the darker the color, however be careful not to over add as it will make the sugar clump or become soggy.

Step 2: Use a wedge of lemon, lime, or an orange to rim your glass.  Then tip the glass over & twist the rim in the colored sugar.

Step 3: Add a few of the frozen berries to the glass.

Step 4: Fill the glass 3/4 full with wine & top with a spritz of club soda.

The colored sugar is festive, fun, & adds a nice little punch to an otherwise boring glass of wine.

It is Valentine’s Day, after all – add the extra touch!
