Americano Cocktail

Low-proof cocktails: the key to smart drinking

This classic low-proof cocktail is a spot-on selection for a warm summer day. It’s a blend of Campari, sweet vermouth, and club soda, making it a crisp and refreshing choice. It will remind you of a Negroni without sending you straight to a hangover.

This recipe is from Thirstie, the on-demand alcohol delivery app with a twist.

  • 1.5 Ounces sweet vermouth of choice
  • 1 Dash of soda water

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
