Lambrusco Spritz

An Aperol spritz is a decidedly warm weather drink, and in this cocktail, the Prosecco and Aperol are replaced with sparkling Lambrusco wine and a touch of Amaro.

Amaro is an Italian bitter liqueur, and it's so rich with deep flavors from herbs and flowers. It gives this cocktail some great depth, and both the flavor and the color feels like a perfect match for a transitional drink between summer and fall.

    I absolutely love this drink. However, I notice there is a red and white Lambrusco, and the Amaro is a dark brown. My drink comes out much darker than the one in the picture. Am I choosing the wrong Lambrusco and Amaro??
