Rhubarb ‘n’ Berries Spritz & Co: Tangy summer drinks to make at home

From April, Vapiano will start serving tasty summer drinks again. Find out here what classics are on the menu again this year, and discover our new creations. We’re also sharing three recipes that you can mix yourself.

It’s finally getting warmer and – at last – you can enjoy our zingy summer drinks again! Because without delicious summer drinks, warm summer evenings would only be half as nice. That’s why our top sellers are back on the menu at Vapiano: fruity Strawberry Basil Spritz, and alcohol-free Lime & Ginger Lemonade. But we’ve also dreamt up some new recipes, so this year for the very first time you can sample Rhubarb ‘n’ Berries Spritz with rhubarb liqueur and prosecco, and Cocktail Vapirinha with white rum and our Vapiano Ice Tea Elderflower Mint. For those who prefer to leave out the alcohol, we have home-made Raspberry Lemonade with raspberries and lime. The summer drinks are available at Vapiano from April – for a limited period only.
