Game Day Spritz

If you find yourself somewhere between watching Sunday football and dreaming of dining al fresco along the Mediterranean coastline of Italy, our Game Day Spritz might be for you! This cocktail bridges the gap between beer drinkers and spritz lovers.

For a cocktail that has literally been around for centuries, the popularity of the spritz never seems to wane. It has become the accomplishment of many mixologists, both amateur and professional, to create their own unique version of the time-honored cocktail. We opted to take it a step further and give another popular cocktail a shot as a contributor to the flavor profile. Our spritz is a little riff on the classic Negroni. And, if you’re interested, both rank high on the cocktail meter of the TABLE team. While some of us were initially a tad more skeptical about the usage of beer to produce the “spritz,” we were pleasantly surprised how  the effervescence created by the beer “hit different.”
