summer cocktail 2015 | the aperol spritz

aperol spritzEvery summer, I pick a new cocktail to enjoy.  My choice for 2015 is the Aperol Spritz. What’s Aperol? It’s an Italian aperitif that’s citrusy and slightly bitter.  While I love citrus, the bitter is an acquired taste.  The other ingredients are prosecco and soda water.  It’s light and refreshing..perfect for 90 degree days!

The Aperol Spritz

3 parts prosecco

2 parts aperol

1 part soda water

garnish with an orange slice

*Spritz pictured is from Ghebellina.
