Three Spritz Recipes Made the Italian Way

Aperol Spritz

Here is one of the most popular cocktails on the planet right now, we love its orange taste that mixes with the fine bubbles of Prosecco and soda. It’s good to taste the perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness. It is also available in a bottled version. However the Prosecco is not present in the bottle, which means that we find a little less sparkling.

Ingredients

Method

  1. Pour the Campari, Prosecco and soda water directly into a wine glass filled with ice and shake well. You want that the Aperol blend in with the Prosecco and the Soda.
  2. Garnish with a slice of fresh orange.
  3. Enjoy

I don’t know if this Spritz already existed, but the idea came to me during an event, when a friend of mine was ordering a Negroni, a cocktail made up of equal parts gin, vermouth and Campari invented by the Count Negroni in 1919 who asked that the soda in his Americano be replaced by gin. I thought it was a very strong alcohol drink for a dinner party that need to become hat is called a long cocktail. When I got home, I tried the recipe that you find below, and the result was delicious. Good tasting!

Ingredients

Method

  1. Pour the Campari, Prosecco and soda water directly into a wine glass filled with ice and shake well. You want that all the ingredients blend in together.
  2. Garnish with a slice of fresh orange or a Maraschino cherry from Luxardo
