In the stylish and social traditions of northern Italy, the talented Bar Toscana Mixologists – Bar Manager/Mixologist Brighid Maguire in collaboration with Mixologists Miguel Hernandez and Robert Carder – have designed four Spritzers for guests to mingle over a pre-dinner cocktail at the recently redesigned bar and restaurant in Brentwood. Considered the most popular cocktail in Italy, and differing from the American Spritzer, the Bar Toscana Spritzers are created with premier Italian liqueurs of grape, rose and bitter citrus mixed with spirits of Aperol, Campari and Cynar, prosecco, fresh fruit juices and soda.
The Spritzers, in addition to the Bar Toscana specialty drink menu, include the Michelangelo; the Donatello; the Raphael; and the Leonardo. The cocktails have been created to complement the extensive Italian Stuzzichini menu of light appetizers and shared plates created by Chefs Hugo Vasquez and Justino Quirino at Bar Toscana. All Spritzers are priced at $14 and will be available beginning March 20, 2018.
