You Have To Try A Weinschorle For A Twist on White Wine!

Looking for a light and refreshing drink that still carries a bit of kick? A German wine spritzer – or Weinschorle in German – is for you!

Made from just two ingredients – white wine and carbonated water – this easy wine spritzer is a popular drink choice in Germany.

A German Weinschorle ready to be enjoyed!

If you know anything about Germans, it’s that they add carbonated water to lots of things.

From Apfelschorle to other fruit Schorlen, you’ll find this handy take on water utilized in many common drinks. Weinschorle is no different!

Lisa has been enjoying Weinschorlen for years. It’s a nice way to have a bit of wine but also get a bit of water in you – especially on a hot summer day.

Eric was introduced to wine spritzers when he met Lisa’s mom. When we visit for dinner, the sparkling water is always ready to be mixed!

You can mix up a Weinschorle to whatever ratio you want!

The nice thing about a Weinschorle is that you can customize it however you like.

Not only do you get to choose a white wine you like as the base, but you can also add in whatever ratio of water to wine you like.

In fact, if you have a machine like a SodaStream at home, you can even add in whatever level of carbonatd water you like best!

We like our sparkling water really fizzy and mixed into the wine at half and half – but you can experiment and try out different combinations!
