ODE — LEMONY BITTER APERITIF MADE IN WEDDING

ODE — LEMONY BITTER APERITIF MADE IN WEDDING

For many, a summer weekend means an ice cold spritzer containing a certain wildly-popular red-orange apéritif. But there’s another mixer that has also been giving cocktails a kick: Ode. Created by Wedding-based duo Stefan Becker and Thorsten and brought to market in 2021, this lemony, sunny yellow apéritif brings a shot of sour and sweet to mixed drinks. The Berlin-made bitters comes in a nice brown glass bottle with a wooden ball lid and includes bergamot, Amalfi, Cedro and Verna lemons plus apricot, peach, cinchona bark, gentian root, wild thyme, artichoke, jasmine flowers and a touch of sea salt. Combined with the premium Rheinhessen riesling – created especially for Ode by star winemaker Nico Espenschied – the blend makes for a summer tipple par excellence. It’s made to be served on ice, with tonic or with sparkling wine – its combination of lemon, sweet stone fruits and Mediterranean herbs giving it a touch of the sun-drenched south. Berlin meets Bergamo – sounds like our kind of blend.
