What’s the one downside to enjoying a Spritz? Getting to the end of it, of course. Head bartender Brandon Lockman, the head bartender at Red Star Tavern in Portland, Ore., meets that challenge with this Spritz version filled with fresh, seasonal flavors.

It comes alongside a tiny carafe nestled in ice, to refill your glass as it’s depleted.
