10 Super Simple Spritzers to Make Now
It’s summertime and the living’s easy. That's all the more reason to shake things up with one of simplest cocktails you can make ever.
Forget everything you know about spritzers, or those watered down wine glasses that are more ice than booze. These libations have gotten a much-needed makeover in time for the balmy months, all thanks to mixologists adding their unique take on the classic refreshing drink.
“During the height of summer, a traditional cocktail is often a bit too formal and aggressive,” says David Solmonson and Lesley Jacobs Solmonson, authors of “The 12 Bottle Bar.”
“Spritzers solve this problem with their combination of effervescence and a flavorful, often bitter, base, which simultaneously refreshes and quenches,” they add.
The perfect spritzer should only require a handful of tasty ingredients readily accessible at your home bar, pack a tantalizing kick, and more importantly, beat the heat day or night.
