Gin Spritz
Serving size: 1
Equipment & Recipe:
  • White Wine Glass (preferably with a larger bowl)
  • Pure & Clear cocktail ice, The Shard (Purchase online HERE or find a retailer near you at our retail page.)
  • 2 oz gin (I reach for a dry gin like Bombay Sapphire with some distinct botanical notes but use whichever gin you prefer.)
  • 2 oz watermelon juice (Lightly blend fresh watermelon chunks and strain through a fine mesh sieve or use store-bought watermelon juice. Feel free to substitute with orange juice, white grape juice, pineapple or mango juice, etc.)
  • 2 oz. sparkling wine such as rosé, cava, Champagne, prosecco (Substitute with your favorite sparkling water or club soda for a bit more dilution and less spirit-forward.)
Garnish (optional):
  • Fruit wheels/skewers
  • Fresh herbs
  • Rimming salt/spice mix (Have fun by making your own custom rimming mix with salt and spices of your choice.)
  1. Lightly wet the top rim/outer edge of the wine glass and gently roll into the rimming mix
  2. Add 2-3 Pure & Clear shards into the glass
  3. Measure and pour 2 oz of your favorite gin into the glass
  4. Measure and pour 2 oz of juice into the glass
  5. Give a couple swirls or stirs
  6. Top the drink off with 2 oz of sparkling wine or club soda
  7. Add garnish
  8. Taste test, make any adjustments, present and enjoy!
