I love a tasty libation (I mean, what mom doesn’t?), so when Italy’s fave spirit, Aperol, reached out and sent me a box of their newest cocktail, the Aperol Spritz, I danced a little victory jig and reached for the wine glasses and ice. I don’t recall much after throwing back a few of these zesty orange-y bad boys…it happens! Don’t judge.
Anyhoo, this summer, Aperol is declaring its signature cocktail, the Aperol Spritz, the official drink of brunch — yep, no more mimosas! If you want to see what all the buzz is about yourself, hit Area 31 in Miami (270 Biscayne Blvd. Way) or mix one up yourself. Here’s the recipe:
3 parts Cinzano Prosecco
2 parts Aperol
1 dash of soda
Serve over ice with a slice of orange
