Red Wine Vodka Spritzer

A cocktail that’s perfect for red wine lovers, full of its rich, juicy flavors plus a little bit of sweetness and spritz.




  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine wine, vodka, simple syrup, and lime juice. Shake well and strain into a wine or lowball glass.
  2. Add tonic water and ice, stir briefly, and serve immediately.


*To make simple syrup, stir together 8 ounces (1 cup) water with 7 ounces (1 cup) granulated sugar in a saucepan set over medium heat. Heat, stirring occasionally, just until the sugar has dissolved into the water. Store in a jar or other airtight container in the refrigerator. This will make enough for several drinks.
