    ÆCORN SPRITZ

    Bitter is better according to our sister company Æcorn Aperitifs and for Halloween, we 100 per cent agree. It’s a bold drink with a bittersweet flavour that pairs perfectly with salty & fat-rich snacks such as crisps & dip – the Halloween snacks we wouldn’t be without.

    Ingredients

    Æcorn Bitter: 50 ml
    Fever-Tree Blood Orange Soda: Top

    Glass & Garnish

    Wine glass
    Orange slice

    Method

    Fill a wine glass with ice. Add Æcorn Bitter & top with soda. Finish with an Orange slice.
