Remember how popular wine spritzers were in the '80s and '90s? Well, they deserve a comeback and they aren't lame anymore. These wine spritzers are creative, using fruits, herbs and flavorings that really create a perfect cocktail for summer. They're great for serving a crowd of guests, because you can make a large batch, almost like a sangria, and let everyone serve themselves or just let everyone make their individual drinks. The recipes we've culled from around the web include spritzers flavored with cucumber, cantaloupe, strawberry and more.
