After the heavy cocktails of the holidays, there’s nothing like a refreshing spritz.

With a lower ABV and a lighter flavor profile, we love these variations from The Bitter Truth. Looking for something even lighter? Sub out the sparkling wine for soda water or your favorite seltzer. Thanks to the dynamic and complex flavors of the bitter truth liqueurs, you don’t need much else to make a fantastic cocktail.

Founded by two German bartenders, The Bitter Truth offers a range of liqueurs, bitters, and a pink gin that make mixing great cocktails easy. At the time the company started, finding unusual bitters was difficult to impossible. Today, they make thirteen styles of bitters and six liqueurs offering bartenders a versatility of flavors that previously would have only been obtained by tedious DIYing. One of the many things we love about the line is that it makes creating complex flavors a breeze and that it is ideal for creating low and no ABV drinks, a trend we see sticking around for a long time to come.
