Question: Why do people drink white wine and soda rather than just wine!?
and what measure do you buy it in, glass, pint!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

People tend to have soda with their wine if they want a longer drink or maybe just prefer white wine with soda in it!. Or maybe watching how much alchohol they are drinking at a particular time!.

It is usually served in half pint measure in total!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.a measure of wine and topped up with soda!.

Some drink red wine with lemonade!.

Its all down to preference!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Because the carbon dioxide makes the wine fizzy and that helps the aroma of the wine to enter the nasal passage better!.!.!.

It also dilutes the alcohol so that it doesn't hit you are hard as drinking a straight glass of wine!.!.!. Which can be strong!.

"Wine Coolers" are wine and soda!.!.!.

But it is better to make it yourself with just a bottle of wine and a half a bottle of Club Soda!.

Then you can mix it to taste!.!.!. And add fruit to make sangria!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

considering the high volume of wine you drink in one glass relative to Its alcohol content it's a pretty strong drink and it can get people drunk very easily!. Strong beer's about 5% Vol, wine is 12-15%!. Adding soda dilutes it so it's not as strong without dramatically altering the tasteWww@FoodAQ@Com

Its very refreshing!.
It can be a way of making a cheaper not so nice wine more palatable!.
It makes a longer drink therefore you dont need so many!.
It dilutes the alchohol content!.
Its a lovely refreshing drink on a hot day!.

Well thats why I drink it anyway!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

People drink different things because everyone palate is different!. also, different drinks compliment different foods!. I wouldn't want to drink wine with Little Caesars pizza!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

its called a spritzer,
it reduces you intake of alcohol,
it makes the wine easier to drink, ie, sweeter!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

when you mix a strong white wine with soda it mellows the intensity of the alcohol and brings out a nice flavor if mixed with a fruit flavored soda!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

People do it because it tastes nice And/Or it doesnt have as much alcahole as just wine by itself!!Www@FoodAQ@Com
