Rocktails Citrus Spritz
A delicious sparkling drink that's reminiscent of an Italian Spritz – but without any of the alcohol. A firm favourite in our office, this has refreshing layers of citrus, fruit, herbs and spice. Try serving it as an aperitif.
Rocktails Citrus Spritz is made with botanicals, including juniper, lemon, grapefruit peel, lavender and basil, that are copper-pot distilled in small batches. Sweetness comes from small amounts of organic agave nectar and each bottle contains 38 calories.
Rocktails Citrus Spritz Reviews
Tasting notes from Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Nose: An initial hit of sweet orange, spicy juniper and Italian bitters: 'It Aperol'd me right up the nose'. Candied peel and Christmas spice lurks underneath, but it's all balanced by fresh green herbs and fruit.
Palate: The classic Spritz combination of citrus, fresh fruit and spice continues: apples and pears, candied lemon and hints of clove. Dry and woody herbal notes sit behind, adding a savoury contrast.
Finish: A hint of sweet apple and lemon with a handful of herbs.
Comment: Surprisingly full flavoured with controlled sweetness and a very strong resemblance to a classic Italian Spritz. Serve it in a Champagne flute, and people might not notice...

I have just served these at a dinner party and they were loved by all of my non-drinking guests, plus they work well with a dash of gin! I'd highly recommend
