Bitter Bourbon Spritz red cocktail in a wine glass with orange and mint garnish

Bitter Bourbon Spritz

Picture of Heather Wibbels, Cocktail Contessa, pouring a cocktailHeather Wibbels
Americanize your favorite spritz with a bit of bourbon, Campari and seltzer with just a little extra Foro amaro on top in this Bitter Bourbon Spritz. Served over ice and sipped slowly, the cocktail’s dilution transforms it as you sip turning the bitter amarii into sweet notes that play along with the vanilla and caramel notes of a bottled in bond bourbon.
