Cocktail/Mocktail Recipe: The Spritz

29 August 2023


Raise a big glass of sparkling refreshment to the last blast of hot weather. Spritzes feel fancy, but they’re easy and flexible once you know the ratio: 3-2-1. Fill a wine glass with ice cubes and add:

3 oz of bubbles (Prosecco or sparkling grape juice)
2 oz of flavor (a sweet liqueur or juice)
1 oz of soda water

Play with the flavor ingredient for variations. Try it with Aperol or Limoncello for a classic Italian cocktail, or St. Germain and fresh mint for a Hugo Spritz. For mocktails, try mango nectar, pineapple juice, or any rich, sweet flavor you enjoy. Cheers!
