THE APEROL SPRITZ

The  Aperol Spritz is one of the most popular aperitifs in Italy, and for good reason. Low in alcohol, aromatic with citrus and slightly bitter, Aperol pairs seamlessly with chilled Prosecco to whet the appetite. Meeting friends for an after work Spritz is a long-established Italian tradition—and one that’s easily replicated anywhere.

INGREDIENTS IN THE APEROL SPRITZ COCKTAIL

4 1⁄2 oz Brut prosecco
2 1⁄2 oz Aperol
1  Lime wheel
1 oz Club soda

HOW TO MAKE THE APEROL SPRITZ  

Pour the prosecco into a Collins glass filled with ice,  add the Aperol and lime wheel, and top with club soda. In the Aperol Spritz the fizzy soda and prosecco balance the spirit’s bitterness.
