Spritz Cocktail

A classic Spritz Cocktail is characterised by a base of sparkling wine or champagne, sparkling water and some form of bitter spirit. For example, in a classic Aperol Spritz, the Aperol is the bitter spirit and in this fresh Lime & Basil Spritz, it's Dry Vermouth.

The combination of the refreshing bubbles from the champagne and the bitterness from the Dry Vermouth makes the Spritz cocktail an ideal spring and summer drink. Topped with seasonal fruit notes, which in this case are lime and basil, but could also be orange, lemon or cucumber, making it easy to adapt to the fruits and herbs you already have in your kitchen.
