Summer Ginger Spritz with Sutter Home Sauvignon Blanc
Prep Time | 5 minutes

One of our favorite bloggers, Kelly, from the lifestyle blog, @Birdie Shoots, created this Sutter Home Sauvignon Blanc Ginger Spritz, a fresh-squeezed take on the classic wine spritzer.
What follows is the story behind her Ginger Spritz.
Summer’s a splendid time for more outdoor entertaining! Coming from an extended Latin family I’m certainly no stranger to impromptu family gatherings. As the years have passed, I’ve grown from attending these get togethers to hosting them. This season I’m mixing up different cocktails that incorporate seasonal ingredients and pair well with light bites. To celebrate the arrival of summer I’ve teamed up with Sutter Home to upgrade the wine spritzer.
The wine spritzer, although delicious doesn’t conger up nearly as much excitement as a new exotic cocktail would. To get the best of both worlds I’ve whipped up a batch of what I like to call them, ‘summer ginger spritz’. This blend of Sauvignon Blanc, lime, and ginger beer adds a spark that will have guests coming back for refills.
I’ve been purchasing Sutter Home for years, and find it is always thoroughly enjoyed by my guests. In the 65-years that they have been making wine, they’ve won countless awards, and have continued to prove that quality wine can be affordable!
