While you can order an Aperol Spritz just about anywhere in Italy, its beginnings are in the north. It is particularly popular in Venice and Verona where it is the aperitivo drink of choice. It's bright orange color is unmistakable and while it is served in a variety of different glassware, the recipe remains the same. This is the classic recipe from Aperol, the company who has produced this low alcohol spirit since 1919. We'll be serving these at our first Aperitivo Thursday this week at Swirl. Come over and try one with a complimentary plate of snack from our friends at Good Eggs!
3 parts Proscecco
2 parts Aperol
Splash of club soda
Fill a wine glass with ice. Add the above ingredients and garnish with half an orange slice. Insert straw, close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting in a lively piazza it Italy!
