In Italian, the name of this effervescent elixir means “don’t worry about it.” One look at its easy build-in-the-glass recipe and low-ABV day-drinkability, and you can see why: The Italian sparkler from Lombardy was just the ticket for the base. “While being light and effervescent, lambrusco is still full of depth and character,” says Nathan Elliott, the lead bartender at Il Solito in Portland, Ore. “It also provides just enough sweetness to satisfy most palates without being overly sweet; it’s a great variant to the traditional sparkling white wine.”

  • 4 oz Lambrusco, chilled
  • 1 oz Cappelletti aperitivo, chilled
  • 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
  • Garnish: Lemon peel
  1. Add all ingredients into a Champagne flute, stirring gently to combine.
