Altena Spritz Cocktail Recipe

Ingredients for Altena Spritz

Tequila: Ocho Blanco is the choice for the tequila cocktail. Ocho is produced from 100% Blue Weber Agave. 

Pink Grapefruit Juice: Grapefruit and Tequila have a love affair starting from the Paloma cocktail! It’s also a great citrus choice for non-alcoholic cocktails.

Lemon Wedges: Give a gentle squeeze before throwing them in the glass for a zesty hit and a pop of zingy yellow colour. 

Passionfruit Syrup: A good choice for passionfruit syrup would be choosing a brand like Giffard.

Campari: Even in small measurements the bittersweet aperitif can add extra depth to a cocktail. 

Sparkling Water: Hear you can choose any sparkling wine but keep in mind that Prossecco will generally be sweeter. For a treat go for a nice Champagne for extra brioche and zest.

Soda Water: The soda water addition gives a bit of dilution and extra carbonation to this delicious Tequila cocktail.
