What is Gewürztraminer?

Gewürztraminer is a white wine varietal that originates from the region of Alsace which is located near the France and German border. This wine has been celebrated for centuries in these countries for its unique taste. 

Gewürztraminer is usually enjoyed young to preserve its floral and aromatic notes. The Gewürztraminer varietal from Fetzer is crisp and slightly dry with tasting notes of honeyed apricot, peach cobbler, cashew nuts, and pastry flavors. To the nose, it includes aromas of rose petal, honeysuckle, peach, and mango. 

Pair this wine with spicy foods like Middle Eastern or Morrocan cuisines. The light, crisp, and floral notes balance beautifully with spices like – cayenne pepper, ginger, and turmeric. You can also pair Gewürztraminer with proteins like duck, chicken, pork, and seafood.

Ingredients for the Grapefruit White Wine Spritzer

For this simple cocktail, all you have to do is mix together the following for a refreshing, tart, and floral blend. 

  • Fetzer Gewürztraminer: Add in this sweet white wine that’s bursting with crisp floral notes, a fruity flavors like apricot and mango. You can find it at all of your favorite stores like Kroger, Walmart or Albertsons. You can also substitute Gewürztraminer for another one of Fetzer’s white wines like Pinot Grigio or Riesling
  • Grapefruit juice: Squeeze in some real grapefruit juice which balances beautifully with the Gewurztraminer wine. If you don’t have grapefruit juice, you can substitute it for another citrus juice like orange juice with a little bit of lemon juice. 
  • Club soda: a spritz is not complete without a bit of club soda. For an effervescent finish, I like using Fever-Tree Club Soda but any brand will do!
  • Whole pink peppercorns: Top this cocktail with some whole pink peppercorns for a beautiful finish and a bold scent of spice. 
  • Sage and grapefruit slice: Garnish with some fresh sage or the herbs of your choice and a fresh citrus wedge!

How to Make the Grapefruit White Wine Spritzer

After you’ve assembled your ingredients, there are just a few more steps to achieve this spritzer! 

Start by pouring the wine into a wine glass filled with ice. You’ll then add grapefruit juice and club soda to the same glass. This will get bubbly, so once this spritzer has settled, sprinkle the top of the cocktail with whole pink peppercorns, this step is optional but I think the color from the peppercorns will look so pretty topped on this cocktail! The last step is to garnish with a sage sprig and grapefruit slice or whatever fresh herb and citrus you have on hand.
