Ambarato Spritz

Fantastic cocktails are at the heart of what we do here at Monteiths afterall delicious food requires delicious drinks. After months of hard work we recently changed our cocktail selection and we’re sure you’ll love our new creations. One of the stand outs is the Ambarato Spritz. Light, refreshing & the perfect cocktail for the Summer months and upcoming Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It's also an incredibly easy drink to make up yourself at home.

50ml Martini Ambrato vermouth

Our take on the classic spritz is just one of many new cocktails now being served at the Monteiths bar. A great pre-dinner cocktail or just as good enjoyed at the bar with a selection of our grazing options.
