    1. While the ratio of wine to water is up to the drinker, when sold by an establishment, by law, schorle (pronounced “SHORE-luh”) must be at least 51 percent wine. “But we also have customers who say they want less wine,” he said. With lunch earlier that day, he’d made one with 10 percent wine, “just to give the water some aroma.”

      Schorle is a minimum of 51% wine (or juice) and sparkling mineral water

Also important: temperature. “Schorle has to be cold, refrigerated,” he said.
