Summer Outing Sipping Luxardo Canned Cocktails


Jill Wenlin

One of the most famous Italian liquor and original cherry producers is promoting the development of its products by entering the canned cocktail market. Founded in 1821 by Girolamo Luxardo, the company is still family owned and operated.

To get these cocktails to debut in the U.S., seventh-generation export manager and family member Matteo Luxardo teamed up with Lindsay Kinder of FOOD LA LACooking club. She is professional in teaching people that cooking is fun and not something to be afraid of while in the kitchen. Her pledge is that every recipe she shares will work, and offers fun facts and easy tips to make meals, parties, and events great.

Together they put together a picnic box filled with FOOD LA LA products and ingredients along with three new cocktails from Luxardo. Inside were FOOD LA LA recipe cards for appetizer skewers to enjoy with a tin of Bianco Spritz; figs, olives and rosemary to slowly drink with a cherry and cherry tonic; And a step-by-step guide to making candied oranges topped with chocolate espresso to enjoy with Aperitivo Spritz.

Canned Luxardo Cocktail

For those who love sipping an Aperol Spritz, Luxardo’s Apertivo Spritz delivers the same refreshingly sweet taste with a slightly bitter orange zest in a refrigerated can.

Although Kinder’s recipe recommended sipping this with a chocolate and orange Sorprese Dolci, Matteo Luxardo on the ZOOM show said this cocktail is also a great starter for a picnic or meal. He believes that the orange flavor prepares your mouth for water in anticipation of a meal going ahead.

The recipe for Dolci (sweets) surprise (surprise) contains the following ingredients:

1/3 cup of melted dark chocolate

3 grams of espresso powder mix

5 intoxicating orange wheels

Pinch of FOOD LA LA seasoning mix

Steps to do this include lining a baking sheet with parchment paper, stirring the melted chocolate over medium-low heat, adding the espresso powder and stirring it into the melted chocolate, and dipping the slices into the chocolate mixture. Transfer to a baking tray, top with FOOD LA LA seasoning and let cool.

Canned Luxardo Cocktail

The Luxardo Bitter Bianco Spritz is a refreshing, lighter take on the classic. It’s made with Bitter Bianco sparkling water and natural flavors. There is a hint of grapefruit flavor and sweetness, and it ends with a slightly bitter end.

This canned cocktail went well with appetizer skewers made with the following items in the picnic box:

6 premium bamboo skewers

1/3 cup pitted olives, sliced ​​lengthwise

3.75 oz. Artichoke hearts

4 oz. Cut the prosciutto into thin slices

1 clementine piece wrapped in prosciutto tape

8 oz. Quality smoked cube.

I thread the ingredients onto the pointed end of the skewer, noting the different attractive colors and textures. Next, I sprayed the skewers with brine from a jar of artichoke hearts.

Fun fact: If you soak the skewers first, it helps prevent splitting.

Canned Luxardo Cocktail

All ingredients for this fig and olive recipe have been combined to pair with the Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin & Tonic Italiano Style. Following the recipe, I measured, shredded this strip and spread it on biscuits for an easy and delicious appetizer. Here’s how I made it:

1/3 cup dried figs

1/2 cup pitted olives (kalamata and green)

1/2 teaspoon minced rosemary

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Tuscan biscuits


1. Combine the figs and olives in a food processor and blend. Finely chop if you don’t have a food processor.

2. Add the rosemary, olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the mixture and blend or chop to get a finer consistency. Add more olive oil.

3. Spread it on the crackers, top with chopped rosemary and open the cooled sour cherry lucardo gin.

This sparkling cocktail offers tasting notes of rich, vibrant cherry and juniper with a sweet finish.
