This straightforward recipe is rooted in the 3-2-1 spritz formula, embracing simplicity with just three high-quality ingredients. The world of Amari offers a wide range of viscosity and flavor profiles, spanning from intensely bitter to lightly sweet and floral. This diversity means that different bottles are suited for various moods and occasions.To ensure you're always ready, keep a selection of bitter liqueurs on hand and explore their unique characteristics. Some of the current favorites include French China-China (spiced, earthy, and orange-based), Sicilian Averna (sweet and citrusy), Californian Lo-Fi Gentian Amaro (juicy and floral), and Brooklyn-based Forthave Spirits Marseille Amaro (herbal with warm spices).Remember to include any hyper-regional bottles you've collected during your travels. They all create delightful spritzes, especially when garnished with a lime wheel.
- Begin by filling a wine glass with ice, then pour in the amaro. Top it off with sparkling wine and soda water. Drop a lime wheel directly into the spritz and indulge in its flavors immediately.
