More Italy! The Venetian Spritz

Still more Italian! Jillian, you asked for the Venetian Spritz recipe, so here it is. Nothing better in life than drinking a Spritz, brought to you by Mateo, on a patio overlooking the Rialto Bridge. Although drinking one in your own living room is a close second!

“Venetian Spritz”

1 1/2 ounces Aperol
3 ounces Prosecco or sparkling wine, chilled
Sparkling mineral water or club soda, chilled
Lemon or orange slice

Pour the Aperol into a champagne flute. Add Prosecco and top with a splash of soda water. Garnish with lemon or orange slice and serve.

We got this version from Chowhound.

  1. Thanks Uncle Brack! I warn all aperol drinkers that this is a dangerous drink; its addictive!
