It’s my new favourite love! As I was walking around Verona, checking out the many sites, both archaeological and gastronomical, I couldn’t help but notice these bright orange cocktails many were holding in their hands. I had no idea what this vibrant orange concoction was! My friend who was accompanying me on this particular walk informed me that it was the Aperol Spritz…something Italians love and consume in copious amounts. I immediately knew I had to try one for myself!
A mix of 3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol and 1 part Club Soda served over ice, and garnished with half an orange wheel, it is easy to make, and far easier to consume! With it’s fizzy, sweet, yet bitter, (or is that bitter, yet sweet?) bursting with orange flavour, it’s a great, refreshing summer drink. Or anytime of year drink really! Great to drink by yourself, but even better with friends! Simple, flavourful…simply awesome! Cin Cin!
