Orange Pina Colada Spritzer

Orange Pina Colada Spritzer - don't give in to fall just yet! | Get the recipe on!

Have you ever stared into your pantry blankly? I don’t mean that zombie stare you get when you’re starving, but are too lazy to make anything.

I mean the one where you want to have something different and interesting, and your brain is trying to pair the half-empty bag of chocolate chips with that forgotten jar of roasted red peppers and the last package of strawberry Pop-Tarts that no one touched because some jerk squeezed the pouch until the tarts broke to bits.

This Orange Pina Colada Spritzer is a little bit like that. Borne from a craving for something I’d never heard of but desperately wanted when the name popped into my head.

(Just to clarify, none of this is sponsored – I’m just painting you a graphic picture of the only way I think this crazy drink can be made. Please proceed!)

I’m a Talenti-holic. I eat that gelato like it’s going out of style, for real. My favorite flavor is Mediterranean Mint, but I’m pretty sure using that in this spritzer would have tasted like going out for a night drinking while constantly brushing your teeth between sips, OCD-style.

Plus, the name would have been super weird and unappetizing.

Back when I was still a gym-rat (RIP those days), I was pretty in love with Bai5, as well. I once mixed my vanilla protein powder with it to make it taste better.

Protip: Don’t mix vanilla protein powder with ANY flavor of Bai5. Just make this cocktail and be done with it.

As far as the Mionetto Spr!z blood orange sparkling wine…let’s just say sometimes my friends and I buy random looking bottles of wine for no reason.

When you put these three ingredients together, my friends, this pretty, fizzy, frilly thing is what you get!

Drink it quickly, though – if you wait too long, the gelato and the fizz become frenemies.
