Clacson Spritz

Bar Clacson | Los Angeles

Bar Clacson, the anticipated collaboration between Eric Alperin (The Varnish) and Richard Boccato (Dutch Kills, Fresh Kills), represents a space that’s both neighborhood-friendly and destination-worthy. Their eponymous spritz captures the aperitif-inspired, low-proof nature that carries throughout much of their opening drink list.


Serving: 1

  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce white wine simple syrup (1:1, white wine: granulated sugar)
  • 1 ounce Aperol
  • 1 ounce vodka, preferably Absolut Elyx
  • soda water, to top

Garnish: orange slice

  1. Shake all ingredients, save for the soda water, with a small piece of cracked ice.
  2. Strain mixture into one half of the shaker tin and top with soda water.
  3. Pour the drink into a chilled Collins glass over an ice spear, or ice cubes.
