Seize the last days of summer with this sharp, citrusy twist on a traditional negroni. This Scandinavian twist on a negroni sbagliato (“mistaken negroni”) is also known as an Aalborg spritz, Danish spritz or Copenhagen spritz. It calls for aquavit instead of gin and the addition of a bit of citrus—perfect for the bittersweet joy of the final patio cocktail of the season.—Christine Sismondo


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz sweet vermouth
  • 1 oz aquavit
  • 1 oz Campari
  • 3 oz sparkling wine
  • 1/2 oz orange juice
  • 1 orange wedge , for garnish

Instructions

  1. Fill highball glass with ice; pour in vermouth, aquavit and Campari. Stir gently.
  2. Pour sparkling wine and orange juice overtop. Garnish with orange wheel.

Kitchen Tip:

Similar to gin, aquavit is a neutral spirit flavoured with savoury spices—most notably, caraway.
