14 Hands Berry Wine Spritzer

Sitting at the pool or beach with a wine spritzer is how I spent a lot of my summer. It's the perfect refreshing cocktail for a hot day, especially when you add fresh fruit to it! This cocktail is simple to make and you can use a variety of fruits and wine to make up the perfect spritzer. One of my favorites is using Sauvignon Blanc and berries.

¼ cup mixed berries
juice of ½ lime
4 ounces white wine
4 ounces club soda or sprite (I used Sprite Zero)

Place berries into glass, top with wine, then club soda/sprite. Stir together and enjoy (or let sit in the refrigerator for an hour).

14 Hands recently announced a new addition to their family which I used in this spritzer - the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc from Washington State. This wine has aromas of citrus and passion fruit. Bright flavors of gooseberry, grapefruit and guava lead to a crisp, juicy finish. It is a perfect wine for the summer and can be enjoyed paired with seafood salad, green salad with goat cheese, grilled swordfish or oysters on the half shell. Or it makes a delicious foundation for this Ginger Peach White Sangria recipe.

14 Hands also released several new vintages from their family of wines. They include:
