Garibaldi Spritz

Garibaldi Spritz cocktail with Campari, orange juice, and prosecco

The Garibaldi Spritz is a sparkling twist on an Italian classic by Talia Baiocchi, editor-in-chief at the Punch website and co-author of Spritz, a fabulous compendium of aperitivo cocktails.

It’s a wonderful intro to bitter citrus liqueurs for folks who typically find Campari and others in that family to be too bitter. The orange juice and sparkling wine (Baiocchi calls for prosecco) take the edge off the bitter, making into a lovely, low-proof, brunch-style sipper.

This can be made with Aperol, as well – but take care to pair it with a dry sparkling wine, to keep it from skewing too sweet.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
