We stopped at the store yesteday to pick up ingredients for making Aperol Spritzes at home (awwww, a little reminder of Italy): Aperol (an Italian liqueur), Prosecco, San Pellegrino, and an orange. The Aperol Spritz is a refreshing summer cocktail (with a very fun bright orange color)!
Slice of orange
3 parts Prosecco
2 parts Aperol
1 splash sparkling water/soda
Serve in a wine glass
Last night I made us a little fresh bufala and heirhoom tomato salad, and some fresh figs with prosciutto and balsamic vinegar to to along with our spritzes. Yum!
Note: Some people prefer the more bitter Campari (red) instead of Aperol, and there's something in between in Italy called "Select" that's half bitter half sweet (I liked the spritzes made with Select and Aperol, but the Campari is too bitter for my taste…feel free to experiment!)
