An Italian favorite, the Aperol Spritz originated in the city of Padua. Mimicking an Italian sunset, the bright orange cocktail gained popularity in 1950s in Northern Italy. And it's become a go-to libation here in America in recent years. Perhaps the most endearing quality of the Aperol Spritz is its simplicity. Made with only a few ingredients, including the light, herbaceous and citrusy Aperol liquor, it's the quintessential spring cocktail.
2 ounces Aperol
3 ounces prosecco
1 ounce club soda or sparkling water
Orange slice as garnish
Add Aperal, prosecco and club soda to a wine glass with ice. Gently stir. Garnish with an orange slice.
