Tailgate Recipes: Wine Sparkler

I don't know about you guys, but I've got major Spring Fever going on right about now. It probably doesn't help that the weather in Dallas has been unseasonably cold this Spring. Thankfully, there is a warming trend happening as I type this. Dallas in the Spring and Fall is so close to being perfect, in terms of weather, that it makes it easy to tolerate the not-so perfect other months.

To get us all, further in the mood for Spring, here is a great recipe for wine sparklers from Whole Foods.


  • 4 bags Green Tea 
  • 2 cups 1-inch chunks Pineapple, plus more for garnish
  • 1 bottle Chardonnay, divided
  • 2 cups Orange Italian Soda
Directions: Steep tea in 1 cup boiling water for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, purée pineapple and half of the wine in a blender until very smooth. Strain through a fine sieve into a large pitcher; discard any solids. Discard tea bags and add tea to the pitcher, along with remaining wine. Stir, pour over ice and top off with soda. Garnish with pineapple and serve.
