Cocktail Hour: Aperol Spritz

Aperol Spritz -the perfect summer drink

I am a self confessed Italophile. There is very little (if anything at all) I don't love about Italy! I spent my honeymoon there, I adore the food, wine, weather, people, language...I could go on forever! Because unfortunately we have neither the wine or the weather over here, I regularly try to conjure up the feeling I have while on holiday in Italy by sipping a gorgeous Aperol Spritz on a sunny day. It is hands down my favourite summer cocktail.

If you are into very sweet, fruity cocktails this may not be the one for you but I think its absolutely gorgeous and so refreshing! Absolutely perfect for a summer party, no messing around with cocktail shakers & you can make a huge batch in one go! Here is how to make it...Aperol Spritz

It must be one of the simplest "recipes" on earth (not sure if you could even call it a recipe!) Start withΒ  large wine glasses, plenty of ice and roughly 2 parts of Aperol per glass. Aperol SpritzNext you add 3 parts of Prosecco to each glass and top it up with some soda water and half a slice of an orange! Done!
