Wine Spritzer



I love having a glass of wine with dinner every now and then. But, when I am watching my points, I make a Wine Spritzer instead. It cuts the points and carbs in half. I prefer Pinot Grigio or a Reisling, but you can also use a Rose, Merlot or Chardonnay instead.

    1. What a good idea for cutting calories. I do not drink alcohol but I do water down fruit juice to halve the calories too.

    8. Hi Gina, Love your site. So excited to try your recipes. It will make WW so much easier. I have been checking the nutritional values on wines and have found Arbor Mist 8oz for 2pts and Oak Leaf Vineyards (White Zinfandel) 1pt for 5oz. Is this too good to be true? Is there any way that I can find out for sure. HELP!
