Cocktail: Aperol Spritz (6 Jan 2012)


Easy drinking Aperitivo

The Aperol Spritz is a quick and easy cocktail that anyone can make. Aperol is very similar in taste to Campari but it's lower in alcohol content. I remember first trying this type of drink at La Vucciria. It's a refreshing drink for Summer although if you're not a fan of Campari then the taste might not be quite to your liking.

Aperol Spritz:
3 parts Prosecco
2 parts Aperol
1 splash of soda
Ice, half a slice of orange

PROS: Quite refreshing if you don't mind the taste of Campari, Low on alcohol, Easy to make
CONS: Can't really stop at one if you like it
MUST TRY: Making the Aperol Betty next time with 2 parts Aperol, 1 part orange juice, 1 part grapefruit juice, some ice cubes, shake the blend.

Aperol, Prosecco and Soda Water = Aperol Spritz
