Sangria Spritzer

I love wine. Red wine has a lot of great health properties such as helping to prevent heart attacks when consumed in moderation. On a warm (let’s be real — hot) summer day I love to relax with a big glass of wine. However, a big glass of wine is easily over 250 calories so that’s where wine spritzer’s come in instead.

Sangria Spritzer

  • 5 ounces merlot (yes, I know that white merlot is technically a rose…but my husband didn’t notice the “white” on it)
  • 10 ounces Tangerine La Croix
  • 2 orange slices
  • 1/8 cup (35 grams) frozen triple berry blend



  1. Add the frozen fruit to the bottom of the glass.
  2. Add the wine and La Croix.
  3. Garnish with two orange slices.
  4. Wait about 5-10 minutes to let the flavors marry before drinking. 🙂
