Cranberry, lime and rosemary white wine spritzer

Cranberry, lime and rosemary white wine spritzer makes a gorgeous Christmas or Thanksgiving cocktail |

The holidays are not the holidays without a signature cocktail. This sweet white wine spritzer is a perfect (and simple!) holiday drink. I love using a sweet white wine but if you prefer to cut down on the sweetness, feel free to use any white wine of your choice.

Frozen cranberries bring flavor to the drink and double as little edible ice cubes. A squirt of citrus from the lime slices and an herbal, festive note with fresh rosemary makes it refreshing and brings in the holiday spirit!

This Cranberry, Lime and Rosemary White Wine Spritzer is the perfect Thanksgiving cocktail because it’s gorgeous, delicious and classy. And with the red and green garnishes, it would also make a delicious, pretty Christmas cocktail, too!
