Taste the Sunset: Aperol Spritz

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 10:06 AM - Posted by Megan - (1) comment

Say ciao to your new favorite summertime cocktail. Aperol, an orange-based liqueur made by Gruppo Campari, is the best-selling spirit in Italy and one of the fastest-growing in the world. It’s fruitier and less bitter than Campari, and is low in alcohol, which makes Aperol a fantastic aperitivo before a meal.

Showcasing this herbal, citrusy spirit, the Aperol Spritz cocktail caught on like wildfire in Italy and quickly became the country’s most popular mixed drink — first created in the Veneto region, where Prosecco is made. Light, refreshing and eye-catching, the Spritz is a perfect beverage for warm weather sipping. After just one taste of this stunning sparkler, I was head over heels in amore.

Aperol Spritz

  • 3 parts Prosecco
  • 2 parts Aperol
  • 1 splash of soda
  • Orange slice
  •  
    Fill a wine glass or rocks glass with ice. Pour in Prosecco and Aperol, then top with a splash of soda. Garnish with orange slice (squeeze into drink and stir before sipping).

    Taste the sunset, smile, repeat. Salute!
