5-Step Cranberry Campari Spritz

5-Step Cranberry Campari Spritz

The long holiday weekend calls for cocktails, and we’re going with this glittering 5-Step Cranberry Campari Spritz. It’s a carefully finessed cocktail of tart cranberry simple syrup, herbaceous campari, and bubbly prosecco. Each sip is elegant and bittersweet — the perfect libation! Our tip: Because this drink is stirred, not shaken, make sure both the simple syrup and prosecco are chilled. Otherwise, it’ll be too “hot” from the alcohol.

Here’s the recipe:

  1. Combine 1 cup fresh cranberries, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

  2. Stir to dissolve the sugar, and cook for 10 minutes, or until the cranberries burst.

  3. Strain the cranberry syrup into a jar, discarding the solids. Cool completely in the refrigerator.

  4. To make the cocktail, combine 1 oz Campari and ½ oz chilled cranberry syrup in a coupe glass.

  5. Top with 4 oz chilled prosecco. Enjoy!
