Stomping Ground Spritz Smash

You’ve spent a good chunk of your Australian winter in Italy and it's been a good time. You return home and with the weather already nice and warm, you're ready to roll into yet another summer of drinking in laneway and riverside bars. But there's just one problem: you can’t for the life of you find a bar that will serve you up an Aperol Spritz.

CORRECTION: Having now stepped outside and walked past several busy venues, it turns out that not only is it quite easy to find an Aperol Spritz, it looks like they’re a life source in bars across the city.

Fortunately for anyone looking to bring a bit of Euro summer down under, Stomping Ground have spritz season in their sights with a new Smash. Pouring a bright and golden orange, you'll find a whole lot of citrus in the glass, with a broad slice of the fruit moving between orange peel, sweet juice and lemon. There's also a zesty and herbal edge while the beer's sour side helps spur on its competitive edge against that famous wine cocktail (and hey, this one is far more park-friendly thanks to the tins).
