A few weeks ago I wrote about whether it is a good idea to drink alcohol on a low carb diet. I mentioned various kinds of alcoholic drinks and their carb content for a typical serving. White wine is definitely not one of the worst offenders, but you can reduce the carb content further by mixing it with zero carb soda. It makes a longer drink, and for half the carbs of a regular glass of wine!
If you have fresh lime, you could squeeze some lime juice and add a twist of peel or a slice of lime to the drink. Or, if speed is of the essence, using bottled lime juice is just fine!
How to Make a Low Carb White Wine Spritzer
Pour the white wine into a wine glass. For lower carb wines, see my review of Dry Farm Wines – every bottle is less than 1g net carb per liter!
Add an equal amount of zero carb lemon and lime soda – here are some options:
- Lemon and Lime Sparkling Ice
- Sprite Zero
- Lemon Lime Twist Zevia (buy it from Netrition!)
- Diet 7Up
- Diet Sierra Mist
There are many other options, including store brand versions. A lot depends on your preference of sweetener – I know that many of you won't touch Aspartame. Whichever you choose, make sure that the wine, soda or both are chilled before making your spritzer! Finish the drink by adding a few drops of lime juice.
How easy was that? You suddenly have a drink that is even lower in carbs than a regular glass of wine, but will last just as long!
