On the menu at seemingly every café in Italy, where they are enjoyed on warm days from the sidewalk tables, the Aperol Spritz is a practically perfect aperitif, with a gorgeous pale orange color and a refreshing flavor from the lightly bitter Aperol and dry prosecco.
- Ice cubes
- 3 oz. (90 ml) chilled Prosecco
- 2 oz. (60 ml) Aperol
- Splash of sparkling water
- 1 orange slice
Fill a high-ball glass or tumbler with ice. Add the Prosecco first, then the Aperol. Add a splash of sparkling water, garnish with the orange slice and serve immediately. Makes 1 drink.
