Day 17

We already had a few ready-to-drink beverages slated for the calendar but then this cute can showed up and we couldn’t say no! This tonic spritzer is made with a red bitter by Delinquente Wine Co in Australia. They blend Bizzaro with a Bengal tonic made by Mischief Brew Sodas for a unique straight-from-the-can bevvy.

Temp Note: This wine should be chilled to about 45ºF. Open and serve right after taking it out of the fridge.

About the Aperitivo

“Bizzarro is our take on an all natural, Australian bitter aperitivo, made in our own Delinquente way – scant regard for tradition, all about deliciousness.

We take a neutral grape spirit, infuse it with an array of fruits, herbs and other botanicals, and use this concoction to fortify a dry white wine. But, of course, we up the flavour ante, using organically grown Riverland oranges and lemons to create an intoxicating citrus hit. Traditional aperitivo ingredients such as rhubarb and gentian root provide the bitterness, while the base wine is our super aromatic, organic and biodynamic skin contact Vermentino.

The result – an aperitivo that perfectly balances sweet and bitter, making it incredibly versatile – pour it into your pet nat spritz, mix it into your favourite cocktails or serve up over ice with a splash of soda.”
