A Spritz in the Dark

A Spritz in the Dark cocktail with rye whiskey, maraschino, creme de cacao, lemon juice, bitters, and sparkling wine

A Spritz in the Dark, from Chris Marty at Chicago’s Best Intentions, is a terrific sparkling cocktail that tastes almost like the essence of every classic cocktail we’ve ever fallen in love with.

Marty calls for Alberta Rye Dark Batch, a Canadian whiskey made primarily from rye. You can use bourbon or a blended whiskey if you prefer.
