This “kitchen sink” spritz from Natasha David is an adult version of the only soda her mother allowed her to drink growing up, a DIY concoction made with berry concentrate from the health food store mixed with sparkling water. “The spritz should be an easy, effortless cocktail, something you throw together from what you have so that you can entertain your friends,” says David, noting that fresh raspberries can stand in for the liqueur, and another amaro can be substituted for Ramazzotti. “The whole idea behind the spritz, even before the ingredients, is the culture. Engaging with friends and having a lively conversation…to me that’s the most important ingredient of a spritz.”
