Spritzers are usually made of wine and carbonated or sparkling water. In Non-alcoholic ones, the wine is replaced with juice instead.
You can make this Orange Spritzer as simple as Orange juice and sparkling water Or make the flavors intense by mixing a few drinks like I did for this recipe.
For this recipe, I have mixed Orange juice, some lemonade, lemon-lime flavored soft drink and some sparkling water. I personally like the tart taste that the lemonade adds and a hint of sweetness and fizz from lemon-lime flavored soft drink. The proportions mentioned can be adjusted to your taste.
I made this drink for my Daughters's 3rd Birthday celebration and I got so many compliments for it. Many loved the fact that it was not that aerated and yet had the fizz. People like me who are not too much into aerated drinks or even otherwise are surely going to love this citrusy drink.
Now to the recipe...
- 4 cups orange juice
- 2 cups lemonade
- 2 cup lemon-lime flavored soft drink used sprite
- 2- 3 cups sparkling water
