Verjus Spritz

Recipe by Adam Chase of Corvino Supper Club in Kansas City, MO, originally published in Good Drinks by Julia Bainbridge

You can’t really go wrong with the classic pairing of verjus, bubbles, and citrus. We like that this drink uses both soda and tonic, so you still get the slight bitter taste you expect from a spritz. Makes one 6-oz serving.


  • 2 oz white verjus
  • 2 oz soda water
  • 2 oz tonic water
  • 1 lemon twist, for garnish


Combine the verjus, soda water, and tonic water in a wine or spritz glass filled with ice. Garnish with the lemon twist.
