This aperitif-style cocktail perfectly fits its name. That said, fans of Italian fizz will be interested to learn how well this spritz works when made with prosecco in place of champagne.


Adapted from a recipe created in 2017 by Fred Charlet at La Cabane, Strasbourg, France, who says of his drink, "The idea was to create a fresh cocktail made with French ingredients: Suze, St Germain and champagne: what else do you need to represent the typically French appetizer. May be a baguette and a béret, but that is not the subject here. I hope you will enjoy this cocktail and don't forget, a good French appetizer always match with French cheese."
