Just as fashion changes with the season, cocktails do as well. This summer the Italian-born, Aperol Spritz is the go-to aperitivo for hot days or breezy nights. Typically made with Aperol, sparkling wine, oranges and club soda, the spritz is a refreshing drink with a lovely bittersweet flavour.
Besides being simple and delicious, its vibrant orange colour and light, fizzy mouthfeel bring a sense of joy to any moment making it the perfect summer sip.
Start by adding ice into the glass, then pour in the Prosecco, the Aperol and add a splash of soda, top with a slice of orange. This serving avoids the Aperol settling at the bottom.
