Heartattack and Thanksgiving Spritz

We reached out to our friends at Heartattack and Vine to create a festive cocktail recipe to serve to your guests upon arriving at your Thanksgiving feast! They've used the ingredients of our spritz pack to create a sweet herbaceous spritz with a bitter finish and vibrant colour, made with an oregano syrup. It tastes like an Italian summer for your thanksgiving lunch, now doesn't that sound dreamy?!

Ingredients: 

  • 45 ml Cappelletti 
  • 20 ml Gin (optional) 
  • 60 ml Toma Castells Cava
  • 15 ml Lemon juice
  • 15 ml Oregano syrup 
  • Soda water
  • Orange wheel and fresh oregano for garnishing 

Syrup:

  • 1 cup water 
  • 1 cup white sugar 
  • Handful of fresh oregano (stems included) 

Method:

  1. Add Equal parts sugar and water in a sauce pan on medium heat, bring to simmer and turn off. Add in oregano stirring to dissolve sugar, let steep.
  2. Once cooled remove oregano, pour contents into a small bottle or jar and store in refrigerator. This can be done the day before. 
  3. Add Cappelletti, gin, lemon juice, oregano syrup and cava to a glass top half with ice and give it a good stir.
  4. Fill with more ice, garnish with orange wheel and fresh oregano. Top with soda as needed.
