Treat yourself to a Red Wine Spritzer from the cocktail queen herself, Shatbhi Basu.
Believed to be originated in Austria in the 19th century as a way to make bubbly wine – this fruity and full-bodied, yet at the same time refreshing and bubbly wine spritzer is the best cocktail to serve over summer and for a party. It’s easy to make, pretty to look at, and incredibly delicious! Add sliced oranges and apples as a garnish, and you have the fruitiness of sangria in no time.
