Italian White Wine Spritzer Recipe

I have not been shy about my love for wine spritzers, to sip just about everywhere I go. There are so many different ways to make it. So I thought, why not ask an expert their version of the perfect combo.

Here’s a wine spritzer recipe from Nathan DeWitt, who recently shared with us the Shades of Grey Cocktail and Non-traditional 4th of July cocktails. He’s the founding member of the Tampa, FL chapter of the Bartender’s Guild and an award-winning bar manager at the upscale Mise en Place restaurant in Tampa (amongst his other accomplishments). His version sounds much better then the cheap Chardonnay with soda water (from the fountain) and a lime wedge some bars have been charging me 10 bucks for around Boston! Check it out:
