Aperol Spritz

A spritz is any drink that’s made with a bitter liqueur, like classic Italian aperitif Aperol, and topped with sparkling wine and soda.  You’ll no doubt recognize Aperol for its distinctive orange-red color and for the Campari Group’s huge advertising and marketing campaign that positioned Aperol as a drink for the creatives, the fashionable and the successful.  But it’s Aperol’s sweet yet herbaceous flavor that has helped the Aperol Spritz to win over legions of fans around the globe.

Enjoy this light, effervescent, and brightly hued orange cocktail poolside or before dining al fresco!
