An Aperol Spritz is (in my mind) the best Summertime drink. The hero of the show is of course Aperol– a slightly bitter orange Italian aperitif. Long table lunches, summer picnics and sunny afternoons call for this beautiful, refreshing cocktail and best of all it’s so simple to make.
You will need:
- 60 ml Aperol
- 90 ml Processo (dry Italian sparkling wine)
- Splash soda
- Orange slices
- Green cocktail olives (optional)
- Tall glass
Build the drink in your glass, starting with the Aperol, then top with Prosecco, add a splash of soda before garnishing with ice, orange and (if you want to be Venetian) green cocktail olives.
