THE ART OF THE APERITIF.
THE MAGIC OF SLOWING DOWN.
THE JOY OF SIMPLE PLEASURES.
I take my cocktails very seriously, but I still want them to be fun. That’s why, after years spent perfecting the recipes, I decided to put some of our favorite spritz cocktails from our craft bar into cans! We carefully craft each drink at our distillery-winery with infusions of hand chosen, organic botanicals, sustainably farmed wine, and real fruit juices.
Frenchie and friends want to join you at the pool and the beach, at picnics and cocktail parties, at bonfires and brunches, to make any hour feel like golden hour. Because you can’t fit a personal bartender in your tote bag, but now you almost can.
XOXO, Emily Vikre | Co-Founder and CEO of Vikre Distillery
just got…Classy AF!
Juniper, Elderflower, Lemon
We distill grape spirits with more than a dozen botanicals, including juniper, elderflower, coriander, citrus, and rhubarb, blended with bubbly rosé wine, and real lemon juice. Lightly sweetened with natural cane sugar.
Rhubarb Orange Spritz
Our house made rhubarb and bitter citrus aperitivo, combined with fine wine and soda water for our perfect take on the Venetian spritz. Bittersweet and beautiful.
Fortified wine, infused with gentle garden herbs, blended with blackberry, rhubarb and apple juices. No added sugar, but also no compromises on flavor.
Not Another Fizzy Drink
I mean, yes, these cocktails are fizzy. Petillant, even (which is fancy, i.e. French, for fizzy). But, they are also so much more. Drawing on the tradition of aperitifs, Frenchie & Friends cocktails are a remarkable balance of lightness and richness, complexity and easy enjoyment. We make them totally in house with real ingredients. In fact, they are so handmade with so much love that it’s almost silly. But we can’t help it! We love these cocktails. And we know you will too.
