White Wine Spritzer: Light, Sparkly, and Low Carb

Jump to Recipe  Print Recipe

This light, sparkling white wine spritzer is low carb and perfect for holiday celebrations. With just 2 carbs per 8 ounce serving it’s a pretty, refreshing cocktail recipe you’ll use again and again. Use ginger ale if you like a sweeter, more flavorful cocktail and the club soda if you prefer drier, fresher flavors.

For this recipe you’ll need: Chardonnay, pineapple vodka (make sure it is 0 calories – some less expensive flavored vodkas hav carbs), cranberries (no carbs because you’re not eating them), vanilla stevia drops, sugar free ginger ale or club soda, ice

Just two days until Thanksgiving, y’all. TWO days.

Every years I swear up and down that I will have everything scheduled and ready to go for the blogs so I can concentrate on cooking and baking but every year I find myself sitting here rushing to finish up so I can get my pies done. Generally it takes a couple of deep, cleansing breaths and a glass of wine to calm my racing thoughts.

This light white wine spritzer is one of my favorites. I  like to float frozen cranberries in it to keep it cold, give it just a touch of flavor without the carbs, and make it look pretty. If I happen to have a sprig of rosemary I’ll add that in, too. Light and sparkly, it’s a full 8 ounces of cocktail with just 2 carbs and that’s hard to beat.

A white wine spritzer isn’t going to hold up to a turkey dinner but it’s perfect when your guests are arriving and you’re serving appetizers. OR when, like me, you’re world is imploding with all of the stuff you have to do and you need a little something to remind yourself to relax.

The vanilla stevia drops just give this white wine spritzer a mellowness that’s nice. It smooths out any jagged edges in the wine and enhances the drink. So good.

This one of my favorites for entertaining – no one gets sloshy drunk and the cocktails are pretty and delicious. Plus seriously, 2 carbs for 8 ounces? It’s almost the same as drinking water! In the summer add frozen raspberries or strawberries.

  1. This sounds delicious! Do you think it would be okay to mix all ingredients together and serve in a beverage dispenser? Or do they need to be mixed right before serving? Thanks!

    • I think so. It would lose some fizz over time, though
