For whiskey lovers, or even those who are new to it, this is a great light and fizzy take on a whiskey cocktail. The warmly spiced and slightly bitter flavor of the Amaro (in this cocktail I use one of my favorites, St. Agrestis) makes it taste really great, and the added benefits of Amaro’s digestive properties make it a great drink to wind down with. You can read all about Amaro in this article!
Amaro Whiskey Spritz
- 2 ounces amaro such as St Agrestis or Cynar
- 1 ounce rye whisky such as Rittenhouse
- 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup plain seltzer
- 1 strip orange zest
- To a tall glass add the amaro and whiskey. Fill the glass with ice and stir to chill. Top with the seltzer and nestle in the orange zest. Stir again to combine and serve.
