Bon Affair wine spritzers (a review)

Remember wine spritzers? Basically a glass of wine watered down with some club soda?

Yeah, I know I just made them sound lame and gross, but I for one enjoyed them in the hot summer months. They were light and refreshing, so I never felt that I was overdoing it by having more than one.

But really, they were still just watered down wine.

Not anymore. Behold the new Bon Affair wine spritzer:  top-shelf, all-natural, ready-to-drink.

Bon Affair is California wine (either Sauvignon Blanc or Syrah) blended with carbonated water, electrolytes and grape seed extract, and no added sugar or sweetener. I went crazy for this idea when I first heard about it. It's so smart -- so smart I wish I had thought of it. With less alcohol than wine and served well-chilled, it's the perfect drink for summer -- or, as founder Jayla Siciliano cleverly points out, "a long wedding or a night out before a big day of work."

OK, sure, you're probably with me on the concept -- but I bet you're wondering how it tastes.

I wondered, too, which is why I tried it.

Verdict? Crisp, refreshing and, thankfully, not at all like the DIY wine spritzers of my 20s. If you like the fizziness of prosecco and champagne, you'll love these.

I'm hooked -- Bon Affair is my new go-to summertime drink.

Do or did you drink wine spritzers? Would you be willing to give a more quality version of the spritzer like Bon Affair a try? Leave a comment: The Ninj wants to know.
