Tony's Zesty Pinot Grigio

a pretty party wine cocktail that is light on alcohol, tart, refreshing on a hot day, and best served icy cold! The nutrition facts are on Calorie Count. Enjoy in moderation with good friends.

Zesty Pinot Grigio


1 bottle very cold Pinot Grigio
1 bottle very cold Club Soda
the finely grated zest of one lemon


Early in the day, put water in ice cube trays and add zest (you can also mix the two together and pour into the trays). Freeze.

Shortly before serving, combine the wine and club soda n a pitcher.

Put the frozen zest cubes in clear glasses and pour in the liquid. Serve with a stir straw so that the zest can be mixed in and consumed as the cubes melt.


try it with lemon and orange zest as well! If you would like.

Or try juicing the lemon and adding that to the wine and club soda for more citrus flavor.
