The Aperol Spritz is a refreshing, bittersweet cocktail that originates from Italy and is thought to date back to the 1960s. The drink became popular in the Veneto region of Italy and quickly spread to other parts of the country. It is made with Aperol, a bitter Italian liqueur, prosecco, and club soda. The drink is traditionally served in a wine glass with an orange slice garnish, and ours is no exception.
Today, the cocktail has become a popular summertime drink and is perfect for enjoying on a warm day. If you’re looking to make your own Aperol Spritz at home, all you need are a few simple ingredients.
To make an Aperol Spritz, you will need:
– 3 parts Prosecco
– 2 parts Aperol
– 1 part Club Soda
– Orange Slice for Garnish
1. Pour the prosecco into a wine glass.
2. Add the Aperol and stir gently.
3. Top off with club soda and give it a final stir.
4. Garnish with an orange slice and enjoy!
If you don’t have Aperol on hand, there are a few different substitutes you can use in its place. Campari is a good option, as it is similar in taste and color. Another option is to mix equal parts of grapefruit juice and seltzer water. This will give you a refreshing, slightly bitter drink that is similar to the Aperol Spritz.
