Whether you’re at a party or just kicking back on a sunny afternoon, everyone loves a cheeky cocktail or two!

But sometimes a full standard drink isn’t what we’re after.

Plenty of Australians are choosing to drink less, but drink better. Whatever the reason for being alcohol-volume conscious, no one wants to suffer flavourless fizzy drinks or mocktail cordials.

This is where the low-abv cocktail (low-alcohol-by-volume) comes in.

We’ve put together a list of flavoursome low-abv cocktails that will keep you present for the party.

The key ingredient to all of them? Our wildbrumby schnapps of course!

Negroni Americano

5.8% abv

The Americano, an original low-abv drink, is made with sweet vermouth, Italian bitters and soda water.

Sound familiar? The negroni was invented when Count Negroni swapped out the soda water in his Americano for gin making the drink a little boozier.

Our Negroni Americano combines the best of both cocktails – a bit of our schnapps-forward wildbrumby Negroni and soda water. Bellissima!

Ingredients:

wildbrumby Negroni 45mL
Soda Water 140mL

Method:

Add ice and wildbrumby negroni to a wine glass. Fill with soda water and garnish with an orange wedge.

You can find our wildbrumby  negroni here.
