Biscotti Spritz

Biscotti Spritz cocktail with sparkling white whine, hazelnut liqueur, butterscotch liqueur, and sparkling water

The Biscotti Spritz really does taste like the treat it’s named for, and is surprisingly light and drinkable considering that it’s built on two very sweet liqueurs. It’s the creation of master mixologist Simon Difford, for Jamie Oliver’s now-closed Italian Bar chain.

Difford has created a number of other pastry-based cocktails, all with the brilliant technique of using a bit of much-maligned butterscotch liqueur for the buttery flavor it brings – while also keeping the sweetness in check with sparkling wine and sparkling water.

It’s a brilliant touch, and the effect is heightened by serving the drink with a piece of your favorite biscotti.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
