These days it’s all about the spritz. And there’s nothing wrong with Aperol Spritz or the Campari Spritz (classics for a reason) but every now and again we crave something new, bubbly and fun. We’re digging local BC fruit right now and Maggie has developed a feature patio sipper we know you’ll love. Find it at Prima Strada Fort Street or make it at home!
