Apple Cider (Vinegar) Spritz

Mocktail Recipe!

A “spritz” is a drink that contains a sparkling beverage and a combination of either alcohol and/or a fruit flavoring. However, a spritz doesn’t have to contain alcohol and, in fact, our Apple Cider (Vinegar) Spritz is non-alcoholic, quick to make and delicious! (Ofc, you can add alcohol if you’d like. Suggestions below.) 

Now, you can make it very-very simple by mixing sparkling water with Pineapple Collaborative ACV. Their ACV is truly unique, as it actually tastes like apples. The recipe ratio is to your taste— We like 1 shot ACV to 8oz Sparkling water.

Or you can make an ACV syrup ahead of time, keep it stored in the fridge and mix a slightly sweeter mocktail, for up to a week!

Apple Cider (Vinegar) Spritz


  • ½ cup Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
  • 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 star anise*
  • 3 whole cloves*
  • 2 cups sparkling water
  • 2 cups ice


  1. To infuse apple cider vinegar: To a small saucepan add apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, cinnamon sticks (star anise, and cloves). Bring to a low simmer on low heat (avoid boiling), about five minutes, then remove from heat and let cool. Strain out the whole spices and reserve to use as garnishes.
  2. To build drink: Fill cocktail glass with ice, add 1 cup sparkling water, then top with infused apple cider vinegar. 
  3. Make it boozy: Add 1oz of rum or bourbon to the above, or replace ½ sparkling water with Prosecco/Champagne.

* Optional, work with what you got, right?
