Citrus Spritzer (Easy LaCroix Tangerine and Campari Cocktail) Recipe

Vicky Wasik

This might be the best easy drink you'll make all summer. Designed by John Swet of The Skylark, it's like a fresh fruit punch, but the sweetness is cut by Campari's bitterness and a good squeeze of lime. Tangerine-flavored sparkling water ties it all together, though it's worth measuring; too much seltzer and you'll get a much less interesting spritzer.

  1. Add Campari, simple syrup, lime juice, and orange juice to a large wine glass. Fill glass 2/3 full with ice and stir to mix. Top with LaCroix Tangerine, stir gently, and serve immediately, garnished with a lime wheel if desired.
