The hottest way to cool down and stay refreshed this summer? Sparkling water! Target’s Simply Balanced private brand options are crisp, effervescent and zero calories per can, and with on-trend flavors like Cucumber Mint and Ginger Peach, they’ll make you want to drink more water.

But the folks at Target were thirsty for more. So they decided to shake it up and turn a few of the bubbly beverages into tasty wine spritzers. Add three parts wine and one-part sparkling water to a glass over ice and garnish with fruit—it’s the perfect summer sip for any upcoming backyard barbecue, long weekend getaway or family function.
