Spring is the season for refreshing cocktails, and the spritz is undeniably the star of springtime aperitifs. Served ice-cold with orange slices, this Italian slow drink is beloved by many cocktail enthusiasts.

However, if you’re not yet convinced by the traditional spritz, we have the solution: reinvent the spritz with a touch of Tamborine Mountain Distillery. More original but equally refreshing, discover our delightful variations of the spritz.

An Australian Twist

Originally, the spritz recipe features prosecco and Aperol, but why not embark on a unique flavour journey and replace the Aperol with Tamborine Mountain Distillery’s Quandong and Gentian Liqueur?

This exquisite twist on the classic spritz promises to take your cocktail experience to new heights. Our unique liqueur, harmonising the beautiful fruitiness of Quandong berries with the pronounced bitterness of Gentian root and Hyssop leaves, creates a symphony of sweet and bitter, boasting remarkable depth and exotic flavours. It’s the perfect opportunity to infuse your cocktail with the captivating flavours of Australia’s unique botanical treasures, setting a new standard for spritz excellence.

Quandong Dream Spritz

Unleash the bold and unique flavours of Australia’s botanical treasures with our Quandong & Gentian Bitters Liqueur. Combine it with chilled prosecco, soda water, and fresh orange slices over ice for a refreshing fizz. Savour the delightful fusion of bittersweet goodness in every sip.

Seasonal Fruits to Elevate Your Spritz

If you’re a fan of fruit-based cocktails, get ready to elevate your Spritz with the delightful essence of Australian seasonal fruits. Our artisanal liqueurs are the perfect complement to these springtime treasures:

These liqueurs infuse your Spritz with the vibrant, zesty flavours of citrus, capturing the essence of the season in every sip.
