The definition of Spritzer

An alcoholic Spritzer, in its most basic and traditional form, is just dry white wine and soda mixed together. There’s no official recipe for the Spritzer, and the ratios change according to personal taste. It can vary from 1:1 wine to soda and up to 3:1 wine to soda water. These are great drinks served in a wine glass filled with ice (or without) when you’re looking for a low alcohol fix.  

There’s also the Italian Spritz, a more evolved version of the Spritzer. We have to mention the Spritz because people often confuse the two, and although similar, they’re not the same at all. The traditional Spritz uses a standard recipe (which you can find on the list of official IBA cocktails) with equal parts prosecco and Aperol with a splash of soda water. Today, more modern Spritz cocktails are trending all over the globe, and we love it.  But that’s not what this recipe is about!

What are the most popular Spritzer flavours?

Flavour-wise, the Spritzer leaves a lot of room to play in. You can use some of these ideas while figuring out how to make a non-alcoholic Spritzer. While the traditional way to serve a Spritzer is with wine and soda, you can add some exciting flavours to give your Spritzer an unexpected twist. Here are a few ideas: 

  1. Blood Orange White Wine Spritzer: Blood orange juice, white wine and club soda in a tall glass filled with ice and garnished with fresh orange slices. 
  2. Vodka Cranberry Spritzer: Cranberry puree, vodka, soda water, lemon and strawberries come together in this very berry-licious Spritzer.  
  3. Sangria Spritzer: Chilled red wine, Grand Marnier, seltzer, and fresh orange is a modern and lighter version of this famous Spanish drink.  
  4. Lime Rose Spritzer: A refreshing combination of rose wine, club soda, fresh lime and basil.  
  5. Limoncello Spritzer: This Spritzer is getting a lot of attention at the moment, and we love it for its intense citrus flavour. Combine crushed ice, limoncello, vodka and club soda in a glass, stir and garnish with fresh lemon.  

How to make a Non-Alcoholic Spritzer

So now that you know what they are, making Spritzer drinks non-alcoholic should be easy. And remember, there are no hard rules, so go ahead and experiment with your favourite flavours. Instead of using wines or spirits, you’re going to add fruit, tea, herbs, flavoured syrup and fizzy non-alcoholic mixers. There are loads of flavour options you can choose from. If you’re looking for more inspiration, look at different Spritzers and figure out creative ways to make these mixed soda drinks non-alcoholic.

The Shirley Temple mocktail is definitely one of the most famous non-alcoholic drinks out there. Equally famous are the Virgin Mary and Nojito.
