Aperol Spritz


The Aperol Spritz, also known as the Spritz Veneziano, is an Italian classic that has an iconic bitter-sweetness that comes from the apéritif from which the drink gets its name: Aperol. It's a bright red liqueur that is made with  flavoral, herbal ingredients that has a distinct taste that might remind you of burnt orange and tart rhubarb. After hearing those flavor notes it is probably immediately obvious why, when paired with prosecco and a bit of soda water, it makes an amazing cocktail to drink in the warmer months.


2 oz. Aperol

3 oz. prosecco

1 splash of soda water (about 1 oz)


Orange slice, for garnish


  1. Step 1Fill a wine glass with ice and let chill for 30 seconds. Pour in Aperol, Prosecco and soda water. Give it a few stirs to combine then garnish with an orange.


Cocktails are best enjoyed right after making and do not work as a make-ahead drink because the soda will go flat.
