Here are our recommendation for a successful surprise:
THE BEST INGREDIENTS FOR THE PERFECT WINTER SPRITZ
A spritz is not just for summer. Chandon Garden Spritz, the naturally delightful zesty, aromatic fizz crafted by international award-winning sparkling-wine brand Chandon, announces the arrival of its delicious new serve at winter gardens, ski terraces and resorts, bars, rooftops and restaurants. The toast of the season, revealed by Ana Paula Bartolucci, Chandon Garden Spritz’s creator, now comes with a dried orange slice and a stick of cinnamon for a new twist on festive.
” Chandon Garden Spritz is the perfect chalet-fireside fizz – because among friends, winter is the warmest time of year”, says Ana Paula Bartolucci, creator of Chandon Garden Spritz.
CINNAMON: A KIND OF MAGIC
A cinnamon stick in a sparkling-wine-based aperitif? Absolutely. Chandon loves the unexpected; it’s in their nature. Since the inception in the 1950s, in Mendoza, at the foothills of the snowy Andes, they have always done things a little differently.
Around 250 different species of cinnamon bark have been identified by botanists, but Ana Paula has carefully chosen the cassia variety for their unique Chandon Garden Spritz winter serve. With its complete lack of tartness it lulls and comforts the palate, creating a sweet sensation, but its flavor profile is hot, pungent and bitter.
“Cinnamon is my favorite winter spice. Cheering and aromatic, it has a nostalgic warmth and sweetness. I love it for the subtle peppery undertones that enliven the Chandon Garden Spritz recipe”, says Ana Paula Bartolucci. “It is perfect for happy gatherings with my friends and family. Add a sumptuously caramelized dried orange slice and a stick of miraculous, transformative cinnamon – our magic wand – and hey, pronto: you have the definitive winter spritz.”
