The go-to “aperitivo” cocktail
The Aperol Spritz is a popular Italian wine-based cocktail and the go-to drink for many Italians during “aperitivo”. It tastes like an Italian summer evening and looks like a beautiful sunset.
It is a light and refreshing cocktail with a perfect balance between sweet and bitter. This cocktail is easy to make and can be served in just a couple of minutes.
How it’s done
Put some ice cubes in a cocktail glass. Fill the glass with 5cl of Aperol and stir until the glass is well chilled.
Slowly pour in your Salute White (10cl). The original recipe requires a splash (2cl) of sparkling water but we left it out to enjoy the full aroma.
Add some extra ice cubes, give it a gentle stir and top off with a slice of orange!
