You'll Want to Sip This Peach Spritz Cocktail Until Summer Is Over
There's no need to wander Rome's cobbled streets to find an authentic Italian aperitivo. For our September issue, superstar chef Mario Batali shared his go-to recipe for peach spritz, with a dash of amaro liqueur and Frascati, a crisp and light white wine produced in Rome's countryside.
According to Batali, the beverage is best when served with fresh peach slices, though we think that serving it in a marble-base glass ($110; at Lee Broom, 844-811-5815), an homage to the Eternal City's iconic statues, is what will really wow your dinner guests. Read on for the full breakdown. Saluti!
