Herbal Spritz

Herbal Spritz
This spritz strikes the perfect balance between bitter and sweet, thanks to the combination of liqueurs—gentian, Calvados, and rhubarb—and a splash of raspberry vinegar.Nicole Franzen

The combination of bitter gentian liqueur and Calvados, Normandy’s famous apple brandy, adds body and complexity to this otherwise delicate drink, while rhubarb liqueur and raspberry vinegar deliver just the right amount of acid and sweetness. Try pairing the spritz with rich, nutty seafood dishes.

This recipe comes from Israel Mejia, the bar manager at auburn in Los Angeles.
