Wanna know my favorite part about this cocktail (besides how simple it is to make)?! I’m loving the Gewürztraminer wine that I’ve mixed in there from Fetzer Wine. A spritzer works well with a flavorful wine and Fetzer Gewürztraminer is perfectly sweet, crisp, and fragrant. Keep reading to learn more about 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.

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