Earl Grey Spritz

Earl Grey Spritz

Made with sparkling wine and earl grey infused honey syrup, this is definitely not your mother’s wine spritzer. You can also use just soda water for a lovely non-alcoholic spritzer. 

3/4 cup fresh orange juice
3/4 cup earl grey infused honey syrup*
1 oz The Bitter Housewife Orange Bitters
1 (750-ml) bottle sparkling wine (such as brut Cava or Champagne)
8 oz soda water
Orange slices for garnish

* Earl grey infused honey syrup: combine ½ cup honey and ½ cup water in a small saucepan over low heat. Bring to a bare simmer and make sure all honey is dissolved into the water. Remove from heat, add 1 earl grey tea bag or 1 Tbs loose tea and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove tea bag or strain loose tea. 

Combine orange juice, syrup, bitters, and soda water in a pitcher and mix gently. Then slowly pour in the sparkling wine, if you pour down the side it will foam less. To serve pour into a wine glass with a few ice cubes and garnish with and orange slice. You’ll want to make this one right before guests arrive so the bubbles stay bright.
