It’s summer – the time of year when people prefer to spend there days and nights outdoors. There are many suitable drinks for this hot season and they all have one thing in common: they are cool and refreshing. But they can also be fruity, which is why we would like to introduce you to a few sparkling Spritz variations that taste best in the late afternoon with good company on a terrace, balcony or windowsill.
A classic Spritz usually consists of three elements: white sparkling wine (prosecco, champagne or sparkling wine), soda water and a spirit. Numerous variations can be built on this basis so that everyone one can enjoy there perfect drink. However, the fact that gin, with its characteristic juniper note, works very well in this formation is less well know. It brings a pleasent variety to the table and consequently, the soda warer in gin classics can be replaced by champagne. Drink specialists know what we are talking about here: the “royal” version of the gin fizz – the “Royal Gin Fizz”.
We would like to present you with four simple recipes for sparkling summer spritz drinks, which can of course be varied as desired: a “classic” Gin Royal Fizz and three fruity Gin Spritz variations – Gin Aronia Spritz, Gin Grapefruit Spritz and Gin Strawberry Spritz.
Have fun mixing them and, above all, have a wonderful summer!
