It’s 5-O’Clock Somewhere: Aperol Spritz

September 6, 2013

This will come as a surprise to exactly no one, but we live for entertaining. We’re particularly fond of setting a dinner party in motion with taste bud-tantalizing aperitifs that aren’t too sweet, like the Aperol Spritz. Fragrant and ever-so-slightly bitter, this lighter cousin to the Negroni involves another of our entertaining favorites, prosecco (bonus!).


Club soda (or seltzer, if you prefer)
Orange slices

HOW TO MAKE IT It all comes down to proportions with this easy-peasy cocktail. Making one? Ten? No bother. However many you’ll need, simply combine 3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol and one part club soda over ice. Garnish with a juicy half-slice of orange and serve in a beautiful glass.
