in Europe it's not uncommon to make wine spritzers with mineral water

It's the standard way all wine was drunk in ancient times. If you said vinum in Latin, you meant watered wine. If you wanted it neat, you had to ask for a cup of merum ("pure").

I'll remember this in case I ever have to ask for wine in Latin...

In Hungary we call it "fröccs" :) even if we drink it with cola instead of water.

'Fröccs' is white wine mixed with mineral water, red wine mixed with cola is 'vörösboroskóla' or vbk :D

Strik in Slovakia (white wine with soda-water)

In Germany, at least here in the South, it's a Weinschorle. You mix the wine with sparkling water ("Sprudel") or lemonade ("süßer Sprudel"). So if you ask for a "süße Rotweinschorle" you get red wine mixed with lemonade

Is there an equivalent way of expressing something as being "watered down" in Norwegian?
