Sherry • Dry
Spanish Spritz

Aperol Spritzes might have ruled summer, but come fall, this sherry-based spritz reigns supreme. Simple and to the point, the easy-to-mix blend of sherry, Cava and ginger from Portland, Maine’s Eventide Oyster Co. is, according to manager Ryan Smith, “warm but sparkly, summer but fall.” It’s the perfect drink for anytime of day; sip it on an autumnal afternoon, make a big batch for brunch or dress it up in a fancy glass for a dinner party. It’s your new, low-ABV fall favorite.
