Summer of Spritz

SUMMER OF SPRITZ

Back in 2016, summer was all about the spritz: the sparkling slightly sweet refreshment traditionally made with a combination of wine and sparkling water. There is no more shame in asking for wine on ice if you add a splash of soda water to it! Better yet, an ounce or two of vibrant, tangy bitter liqueur, prosecco, and some sparkling water. From the polarizing Aperol Spritz (read Rebekkah Peplar’s The Aperol Spritz is Not a Good Drink,), to lesser known variations with Crème de Cassis or Cynar, at Aurora we believe that CBD can make a spritz even better. Our bright, balanced, effervescent refreshers add a tempting twist to traditional summer spritzes. The inspiration for our flavors and formulations originates from that summer of the spritz, where bitter, citrus, and herbal slightly sweetened cocktails drove the original recipes for our hemp infused sparkling beverages.

We invite you to celebrate summer flavors with one of our refreshing twists on the spritz. Add Aurora Sparkling Hemp Beverages for the benefits of 25mg whole plant hemp CBD for relaxation + hydration and elevate your cocktail with more than just sparkling water.
