1oz Luxardo Bitter
1oz Cocchi Americano
Add the Prosecco, Luxardo Bitter and Cocchi Americano to a chilled rocks glass. Add ice and stir gently. Garnish with the orange twist.
Light citrus rhubarb nose. Bubbly Prosseco comes up stronger in the front followed by the bitter orange rhubarb and sweetness of the Luxardo bitter, which is accented by the Cocchi with notes of fruit and bittered goodness. A lightly bitter sweet bubbly finish. More like a cross between a sbagliato and an aperol spritz, this one is sure to refresh you.
This is an easy twist on the Negroni Sbagliato, swapping Luxardo Bitter for Campari, which gives the drink a sweeter less bitter flavor, and Cocchi Americano for sweet vermouth, which lightens things up a bit, but adds a little more bitter to the finish.
Little Red is light and refreshing but just a little bit bitter (Wouldn’t you be?). It also showcases just how easy it is to create something interesting by simple substitutions.
