Is this the hottest drink of the summer?

With the sun making an appearance at the weekend it finally felt like time to pop open a bottle of fizz and have a little fun sampling and picking out your go-to drink for summer 2019.

If, like us, your signature summer tipple of last year was an Aperol Spritz then you’ll be thrilled to hear of Smith & Sinclair’s innovative new F.I.Z.Z’s, a playful way to update your champagne (or prosecco) of choice

The more adventurous Italian cousin of the Aperol Spritz, Smith & Sinclair have introduced a Peach Bellini to their already popular roster of Rhubarb Mimosa and Passionfruit & Elderflower Spritz effervescent tablets.

Fuss-free and completely vegan Smith & Sinclair’s F.I.Z.Z’s are ideal for picnics in the park and summer BBQs thanks to their simplicity. Simply drop one effervescent tablet into a flute of champagne, to create your own cocktail, and watch the colour and taste transform in your flute.

Smith & Sinclair’s Co-Founder and Head of Innovation, Emile Bernard, shared that as'”we’re always looking at ways to hack the art of cocktail making we wanted to have a little fun with the Peach Bellini.’ Transforming such a classic cocktail into a contemporary effervescent tablet not only eliminated any ‘prep or unnecessary ingredients’ but proved a fun way to maintain ‘a lot of theatre!’

Pitched as an Italian cousin of the cult Aperol Spritz, Smith & Sinclair’s ‘F.I.Z.Z up your life’ campaign isn’t limited to delicious effervescent infusions. The brand has curated an instant hamper to ensure that all of your summer party needs are catered for, wherever you are. Think, cinema screenings in your own back garden, open-air theatre performances and your best friends birthday picnic.


Complete with two bottles of prosecco, their signature cocktail gummies, a cosy picnic blanket, edible Bellini bubbles, flutes and a much loved Gincredible Dipper. Available for just £45, this vibrant Cocktail Hamper not only provides an Instagram friendly edge to your summer soiree but also provides a great way for you (and your friends) to sample Smith & Sinclair’s innovative offerings and customise your own bespoke tipple.

Available to shop, with worldwide shipping, online at Smith & Sinclair or instore at Sainsbury’s.
