1 bottle very cold Pinot Grigio
1 bottle very cold Club Soda
1 t very finely grated lemon zest

Spoon Mage™ Notes:

This works with the zest or juice of your favorite citrus. Replace zest with juice if you do not care for the bitter flavor of zest. Just add a splash of lemon juice when you mix the drink.

For a prettier drink, slice one lemon very thinly, discard seeds, and add one slice to each glass when you fill them with ice.

This is the perfect refreshment for a hot summer day. In fact, this is so delicious that we keep forgetting to take pictures of it. Remind me or send the Spoon Mage™ your picture and look for it to appear here!


Early in the day, put water in ice cube trays and sprinkle a little bit of zest on top of each cube.


Shortly before serving, combine the wine and club soda in 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.
