North Coast Spritz by Adrian Alvarez

During the summer months instead of our usual spirit forward cocktails my friends and I will normally order or make amaro based spritz cocktails. It’s all very simple all you need is amaro, prosecco, clb soda and a wine glass. It’s the perfect cocktail during the hot months just sweet enough, not too boozy to get you dehydrated. Adrian took our love for a low abv spritz cocktail one step further by creating the north coast spritz, the perfect transitional refreshing drink to keep us going just right before the weather demands we start drinking, old fashions, whiskey and bold red wines.
