Italian aperitivo

Aperol Spritz - An Italian Summer in Every Glass

After a long and rewarding summer's day in Italy I like nothing better than to stroll into a piazza, take a front row seat at the theater of life (an outdoor cafe) and order an aperitivo.

Soon little plates are placed before me, bruschetta, salami, mortadella, olives etc.

Then comes my Aperol spritz and I am in heaven for the next hour. 

I watch the world go by, chat with friends, nibble on the snacks and sip my drink.

Could anyone have invented a more perfect way to end the day?

Can't get to Italy?

Then bring a little Italy to wherever you are in this great big wonderful world with our Aperol spritz recipe.

Serve it with Italian style mini bites and a little Bocelli music playing in the background. 

Before you know it you'll be in that Italian piazza, a gentle breeze ruffling your hair and the sound of Italian in the air.

Aperol Spritz was invented in the great city of Padua. How about a quick trip around town while you sip on your aperitivo? Click here to start.

The Aperol Spritz Recipe

  • Half fill a large wine glass with ice.
  • Pour 3 parts Prosecco over the ice.
  • Next, stir in 2 parts Aperol.
  • Add in 1 part soda water.
  • Finally, top with a slice of orange or lemon. I prefer orange but some say lemon. I prefer orange but some say lemon is the better choice. Try it both ways and see which you prefer.
