The Night at the Spritz, a nonalcoholic cocktail created by Alison St. Pierre, a bartender at King in New York City, was inspired by the Mediterranean culture of aperitivi and digestivi and its traditional low-alcohol midday refresher: Campari & Soda. By replacing the Campari with the nonalcoholic spirit Ghia and mixing it in equal parts with sparkling water, the result is a foolproof mocktail suitable for any time of day. An orange twist and a sprig of rosemary supply extra aromatics.
