"Apollo Spritz | Crafted Pour"

"Phoebus Apollo (AKA "Bright Apollo") was a bright deity for a variety of reasons. The most notable one, naturally, being that he is the sun god of Greek mythology (technically there's also Helios, but ya know there's a lack of mutual exclusivity when it comes to Deities of {insert concept here} also Helios was a Titan and Apollo like killed him or something) Anyways personifying the sun god, the great authors of Nectar of the Gods settled upon a sort of Campari Spritz as the ode to the sun rising above! Like other amaro spritzes we're essentially making our amaro spirit (the Campari in this case) bubbly and diluting it to allow other characteristics to *shine* (see what we did there? Sun pun). Overall the bitterness of the Campari remains and what notes I get from the Prosecco that I used are primarily grapefruit and nondescript citrus. I personally found that adding a bit more lemon juice rounded out the bitterness. After that addition, it tasted like a sour ale, one that's got a very citrusy set of hops. Refreshing and bright, it's one of those start-your-day-off-right cocktails! Apollo Spritz 1/4 oz (7 ml) Lemon Juice 2 oz (59 ml) Campari 2 oz (59 ml) Soda Water 4 oz (118 ml) Prosecco (Brilla!)
