Recipe | How to Make the Perfect Aperol Spritz

If you’ve ever been to Italy, there’s no doubt you’ll have come across an Aperol Spritz. I first tried this classic Italian cocktail on a recent getaway to Italy, and now every time I drink it, the taste takes me right back. Nothing beats a refreshing spritz on a warm summer’s afternoon.

Aperol Spritz is a prosecco-based cocktail commonly served as an aperitif. But don’t be fooled by its bright orange appearance – this cocktail has just the right amount of citrusy sweetness balanced out by the spirit’s natural bitter flavour. Thirsty yet?
