  • Ready to drink - lightly sparkling, just pop the cap
  • Freshly made - because who wants a UHT cocktail?
  • Just add ice - for the perfect summer spritz

This original recipe came to our Kocktail Curator Neil, when during a regular trip to our local greengrocers his gaze was drawn by the alluring pink rhubarb.

With the delights of tart Rhubarb in mind, Neil sprang to work creating this delightful spritz, with a gentle profile added by the cucumber syrup and an extra zing of complex grapefruit bitters rounding out the flavour profile.

 

WHAT IS A SPRITZ?

A spritz is a refreshing and effervescent wine based cocktail. Usually created by adding soda water to a base of wine and other flavourings, these light and summery cocktails are perfect for warm sunny days on the Italian coast.

The classic aperitivo, the Aperol Spritz, has become a summer go to with the vivid orange cocktail being seen in bars across the world. We have reimagined the genre with our original and delicious take on the spritz, designed to be enjoyed with friends while dreaming of the Adriatic.

HISTORY OF THE SPRITZ

Spritz’s have been quaffed with delight for at least the last 200 years. It’s believed that the style originated when soldiers from the House of Hapsburg were posted in the Venice region and requested that the barkeeps add a splash of still water to their sparkling wine, as the Italian wine was too potent for the Hapsburg forces.
