Aperol spritz is the ultimate summer cocktail!
This Italian apéritif is usually enjoyed before dinner or on a hot summer day for lunch.
The Aperol liqueur is made with gentian, rhubarb, and cinchona. These give it a very unique taste that pairs well with something fizzy.
This cocktail is a light and refreshing with the perfect balance of sweet and bitter.
In Italy, it is also commonly served with green olives!
The New York Times recently described it as ‘Not A Good Drink,’ however, the response and backlash both online and on social media was overwhelming and the Aperol spritz continues to be a favorite among the crowd!
I hope you give this one a try!
