SAGE. SAAAAAAAAAGE. What started as a little trip to the Farmer’s Market turned into one of the most enjoyable weeks of drink making I’ve had all year. Sage is so earthy, has such depth of flavor, and is perfect for muddling into Cocktails!
If only you could last forever, I would never let you go. #SageLover
I’ve got one last cocktail to wrap up this week’s Sage + Gin party and it’s a stirred drink. This one is a riff on a 2:1 Martini with a bit of Chartreuse Vert for its vegetal qualities and using one of my fave Vermouths, Carpano Bianco.
As far as the name goes, um, it sort of popped in my head and I sort of said, “Ok Bro.”

Y’all in just a couple of days the Earth is going to be the closest to the Sun that it will be all year and we know what that means, SUMMER IS UPON US! To celebrate this glorious occasion and kick off the Solstice parties, let’s have a Summer Spritz with Carpano Bianco! Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, which means we need to be sipping on some light, refreshing cocktails to keep the party going ’til the Sun sets.
Carpano Bianco is one of the magnificent Vermouths made by the House of Carpano in Italy. The flavor is light, fresh and complex with citrus and exotic fruit notes coming through, followed by grapey, vinous notes, and rounding out with almond and floral tones. Essentially, perfect for summer and perfect for Spritzing.
Well, are we ready to have a Solstice party? Yes? Ok!
What you need:
- Lots of Carpano Bianco (I’d recommend at least 1 Liter)
- San Pellegrnio Limonata and/or Pompelmo
- All of the Citrus (yes, I mean ALLLLL of the Citrus)
- Some adorable napkins and paper straws
- Fun party cups
- Party people
Summer Spritz with Carpano Bianco
- 2 oz Carpano Bianco

Build in Glass: fill glass with ice, add Carpano Bianco, San Pellegrino, and gently stir. Garnish with Citrus wedges.
Summer Spritz prrrrrrty time y’all.
Sipping on this right now and it’s so wonderful. The Summer Spritz is perfect. Cheers!
