Some of my favorite cocktails come from a random mixture of things when we’re not at home – this Campari Rosé Spritz is the perfect example!
Some of my favorite cocktail concoctions come from being in front of someone else’s bar! That’s the case for this Campari Rosé Spritz! We spent a little bit of time in Maine earlier this year with our friends Emily and Jon. Emily’s parents hosted us for dinner a few nights and OBVIOUSLY we had to break out the cocktails pre-feast. Traditionally we make Aperol Spritz’ when we’re together but Aperol was no where to be found at the time so we had to get creative.
This Campari Rosé Spritz takes all the components of a traditional spritz but with a spin. Campari instead of Aperol. Rose instead of Prosecco and Lemon instead of Orange. It’s an easy swap and equally as delish. It’s also perfect at any time of the year so while it absolutely works for summer, it’s also incredible with my Roasted Chicken Dinner Party Menu as it adds a bit of zip to the winter vibes!
It’s also a part of my Roasted Chicken Dinner Party Menu – which you should totally make this season. It’s incredible!
