Putting on the Spritz

It’s about drinking lighter this summer!

The cocktail trend of the spritz, a simple mix of liquor and something bubbly, makes good sense. During the dog days of summer, they’re cooling and refreshing. Plus, their lower alcohol content makes them a lighter sipper, and a nice alternative to booze-heavy cocktails. Manor Vail Lodge’s Black & Blue Spritzer features blackberry vodka and a blackberry garnish. At Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego, the Summer’s Rose Spritz uses a housemate honey lavender syrup to elegantly sweeten the drink. The Hibiscus Royale from Stowe Mountain Lodge’s “Garden To Glass” menu, features fresh muddled mint and hibiscus syrup for freshness and a beautiful rosy color. The St. Germain Cocktail from Motif Seattle uses both sparkling water and sparking wine for an extra effervescent effect.
