5 Wine Spritzer & Mimosa Spritzer Ideas

Posted on April 18, 2015 by Customer Service

Wine spritzers are a great drink for any get-together. Light, refreshing and delicious. Today we are featuring 5 different wine spritzers you can effortlessly make with your Bonne O system. Each is certain to be the best wine spritzer ever since all ingredients are carbonated and pressure infused in the bottle - the wine, water & juice!  No weak, half-carbonated spritzers for you.

Today we will create a Classic White Wine Spritzer, a Strawberry Infused Rosé Spritzer, a Grapefruit Mimosa Spritzer, an Orange Mimosa Spritzer and a Classic Red Wine Spritzer. Five should be good to start. You take it from there - vary the wine to water ratio and try different juices. The only limit is your creativity and using cold ingredients for excellent carbonation.

A Classic White Wine Spritzer is very easy to make.  It requires only a chilled bottle of dry white wine, one carbonator and some cold water. Fill half the bottle with chilled, dry white wine and top up the bottle to the very top with cold water. Fill the flavor chamber with cold water and place a carbonator in the carbonation chamber. Close the system and push the button. Click here for a video of the system in action creating the White Wine Spritzer.

A Strawberry Infused Rosé Spritzer is a visual and taste treat.  It requires a chilled bottle of dry rosé wine, a strawberry, one carbonator and some cold water. Place a couple of slices of strawberries in the bottle, half fill the bottle with chilled, dry rosé wine and top up the bottle to the very top with cold water. Fill the flavor chamber with cold water and place a carbonator in the carbonation chamber. Close the system and push the button.

Spritzers prepared with Bonne O will remain sealed and fully carbonated until you are ready to enjoy. Fruit and wine combinations will create many bubbles. Top open easily, do the following. Press the vent on the top bottle cap to release some pressure, let the bubbles settle and repeat a couple times. After that the cap will be easy to open. Enjoy!

This is my new favorite and maybe your Mom's as well. A Grapefruit Mimosa Spritzer is light, tart and refreshing and is good from breakfast to evening. Amazing! To create we used a chilled bottle of dry white wine, some pulp-free grapefruit juice, cold water and a carbonator. Fill half the bottle with chilled white wine and top up with cold water. Fill the flavor chamber with pulp-free grapefruit juice and place a carbonator in the carbonation chamber. Close the system, push the button.   

The classic Mother's Day brunch accompaniment is the Orange Mimosa. The Orange Mimosa Spritzer is lighter and more refreshing, using half wine, half water. To create it we used a chilled bottle of dry white wine, some pulp-free orange juice, cold water and a carbonator. Fill half the bottle with chilled white wine and top up with cold water. Fill the flavor chamber with pulp-free orange juice and place a carbonator in the carbonation chamber. Close the system, push the button. Click here for a video of the start of the carbonation cycle. Orange juice has a higher density than the wine and water so it is quite a visual effect.  If you prefer to make an Orange Mimosa, completely fill the bottle with chilled white wine in the directions above - no water.

Finally, the Classic Red Wine Spritzer. This is surprisingly refreshing. I say surprising since the rich ruby color belies the chilled, refreshing taste. Note that unlike white wine spritzers and mimosas where a basic bottle of white wine will taste great, bad red wine tastes like a bad red wine spritzer. Use a bottle of red you would enjoy on it's own. Personally I find a nice syrah is excellent sparkled or as a spritzer. Making this is identical to creating the Classic White Wine Spritzer, just substitute a chilled red wine for the chilled white wine.
