Summer Drink Recipe
The Aperol Spritz, an Italian cocktail, is all the buzz this summer of 2022 and we want to give you the resource to make it at home! Bubbly, citrusy, herbal, subtly bitter and lightly sweet…it’s the most classic bubbly mixed drink of them all. But what even is an Aperol Spritz? It is an Italian aperitif, a drink for before a meal. The spritz was invented back in the 1800’s in Italy as a way to water down sparkling wine by mixing in…well, water! It wasn’t until the 1950’s that the Aperol spritz took the form it has today. What is Aperol? Aperol is bright orange and most used in the Aperol spritz cocktail. The flavor is lightly sweet, bitter, and balanced, with notes of herbs and citrus. It has a low alcohol content (22 proof or 11% ABV). The Aperol spritz has these ingredients in a 3-2-1 ratio:
- Sparkling wine (like Prosecco or champagne)
- Soda water (not tonic water)
How to make a quality Aperol spritz?
- Use a high-quality Prosecco! The key to a great spritz: use great sparkling wine! The reviewer above complained about low quality Prosecco making the drink too sugary. Don’t do it! Grab a mid-price range bottle of Prosecco or champagne for this one with a dry flavor.
- Make sure both the Aperol and Prosecco are chilled. To minimize dilution, have both alcohols chilled as much as possible.
- Squeeze in the orange! Bring more tangy citrus notes by squeezing in the orange wedge to the drink, then adding it as a garnish.
- Use plenty of ice. Keep that beverage ice cold! Try clear ice for the most stunning look (see below).
- Use a straw! It’s optional but drinking out of a straw keeps your hand from warming the glass. Less dilution, better drink!
