An Afternoon Spritzer

  Ecco_Prosecco_Mixer_02  As we soak up the last remaining days of summer I was looking for the perfect light and crisp afternoon aperitif for our group of friends. I brought along a couple chilled bottles of Ecco Domani’s ECCO PROSECCO and enlisted my friend Jared, who knows how to make amazing cocktails, to concoct a great floral spritzer to leave us feeling like hummingbirds in the afternoon light. Building off of the floral notes found in this frizzante-style wine Jared made the perfect quick pitcher of drinks to serve for any summer occasion.

4. To compliment the citrus notes found in Ecco Prosecco, add slices of lemon to keep the bright aromas while adding a summery visual touch to the vintage pitcher.

 5. Follow up with a few turns of a spoon to mix, but lightly as to not lose the fizz that makes this spritzer so refreshing.

6. Garnish the rim with something bright and summery like a slice of lemon and petite strawberry.

7. If it’s a really warm day and you’re enjoying the spritzer outside you might want to add some ice cubes to keep it chill.
