Spring Spritzer

Posted on: June 1, 2020

Finally, spring has sprung!  I don’t know about you, but this warmer weather is making me feel happier and definitely wanting to whip up a nice and refreshing beverage to enjoy after these work Zoom calls.  I am always looking for new and exciting drinks that I can make from home and I found just that on the Metro website.  Simple and easy, these ingredients can be found at Metro to make that yummy “Spring Spritzer” you’ve been needing to quench your thirst.

What you will need:

1 Grapefruit, juice and peel
½ Cup (125 ml) White Wine
3 tbsp (45 ml) Grapefruit Juice
1 tbsp (15 ml) Simple Syrup
¼ Cup (60 ml) Tonic Water
8 Mint Leaves


  1. Juice the grapefruit and pour juice into a large wine glass.
  2. Add all the other ingredients.
  3. Stir well with a spoon.
  4. Add ice cubes and decorate with a twist of grapefruit peel.


To make simple syrup, bring equal portions of water and sugar to the boil, then let simmer until sugar is fully dissolved.  Make sure not to boil for too long, as the sugar solution will become too thick.

Voila, sit back, relax and enjoy your Spring Spritzer!
