Common name in Germany for a mixture of wine with soda or mineral water. It derives from the popular toast of a French officer who was stationed in Germany (Würzburg) at the beginning of the 19th century. Before each glass he used to say "Toujour l'amour", which roughly means "love every day". This then became the verbalisation "Schorlemorle" and later the short form "Schorle". In Austria, such a drink is called Gespritzter (dialectally G'spritzter, Spritzer) or mixture. However, there are certainly other, country- or local-specific names. See other drinks under wine-based drinks, mixed wine drinks and special wines.
