Schorle is a German beverage made from diluting juice or wine with carbonated water. The most common variety is Apfelschorle (made from apple juice and sparkling mineral water). Large bottles of Schorle can be found at most grocers, stores, supermarkets and anywhere else where carbonated drinks are sold, next to the soda. Due to its dilution it is less sweet or alcoholic than the original beverage, making it better suited as a refreshment on hot summer days or as an alternative to beer at the biergarten or weinstube.

Typical proportions are half seltzer in a high glass and half juice or sweet wine. In the Palatinate (wine region), in Germany, proportions consist of 1/3 water and 2/3 wine.
