We have already spoken several times about Spritz, the mythical cocktail born during the Austro-Hungarian domination of the Veneto.
Over the centuries, it has transformed and adapted to many cities and customs of the Triveneto and from a simple cocktail based on sparkling water and wine has taken on many faces: Aperol Spritz, Campari Spritz, with Select, with Blue Curacao, but one is still missing.
The Cynar Spritz. This is not a sponsored page and we do not want to promote any brand, but the Spritz with Cynar is not bad at all!
To be honest, we hadn’t tried it yet, but the surprise was great. The artichoke bitter has an aromatic thickness and lends itself very well to the combination with the freshness of an excellent white, finding balance and gustatory precision under the pressure of the bubbles of the soda.
It is not as sweet and jaunty as the one with Aperol but not as sharp and citrusy as the Spritz with Campari. Let’s say that it is the most complex of the three, the most for meditation. But let’s go to the recipe.
Ingredients and doses for Spritz with Cynar
- 6 cl of white wine or Prosecco
- 3 cl of Cynar bitter
- a splash of soda
- lime slice
How to prepare Spritz with Cynar
Fill a tumbler with ice, pour the wine, then the Cynar and finish filling with sparkling water. Decorate with a slice of lime and orange and serve your new flaming Spritz; even the color is a show!
If you want an even more aromatic cocktail, use ginger ale instead of soda.
