A Spritz in the Dark
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.
- 2½ parts Rye whiskey or Bourbon or Blended whiskey
- ½ part Maraschino
- ½ part Crème de cacao
- ¼ part Lemon juice
- 2 dashes Creole bitters
- 1 dash Aromatic bitters
- 1½ parts Sparkling white wine
Shake everything (except the sparkling wine) with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with the sparkling wine. Garnish with a fresh mint spring wrapped with a lemon twist, and serve with a straw.
