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. He infuses Aperol with strawberries and stirs it with Lillet Blanc apéritif and rhubarb bitters, served in an absinthe-rinsed Nick & Nora glass and topped with sparkling wine. It comes alongside a tiny carafe nestled in ice, to refill your glass as it’s depleted.

The classic grapefruit Paloma gets a hint of herby goodness.
The lightest, crispest Martini you’ve ever tried.
Fennel and citrus pair beautifully in salads. So why not try them in a cocktail?
Forget milk and sugar. Spike your next cold brew with vodka and sherry.
Make your Mule even more refreshing by adding a fruity twist.
A proper Gin & Tonic is one of life’s simplest pleasures.
