The summer cocktail called Bicicletta is actually very simple to prepare. You don’t even need professional bar equipment. First, measure out the white wine and Campari and pour both ingredients into a wine glass (or tumbler) filled with ice. Add a splash of orange juice and two orange slices to the glass and stir the mix very gently with a bar spoon (or tablespoon). Now just top up with soda water and stir gently again. Then serve immediately or enjoy yourself.

The taste of the Bicicletta Cocktail


31 Reviews

This summery aperitif has a surprisingly fresh flavour profile, characterised by fruity and tangy notes. Some sweetness, slightly tart notes and the taste of fruits determine the flavour profile. Depending on which white wine you use, the taste can be sweeter or drier. Overall, however, the aperitif is very refreshing, fruity and not very alcoholic.
