I’ve been meaning to make this cocktail for quite some time, but because I’m a cocktail/liquor guy and not a wine guy, I don’t have as much access to Prosecco, an essential ingredient to the Spritz.
Prosecco is a popular Italian sparkling white wine, and I got a hold of a bottle of Mionetto Prosecco DOC recently (which runs about $15/bottle), and I made an Aperol Spritz right away. The Spritz is a refreshing, yet dry (not too sweet) fizzy cocktail. Here’s how you make it.
- in a balloon glass filled with ice, add in this order:
- 4 oz Prosecco DOC
- a splash of club soda (probably about 1/2 oz)
- 2 oz Aperol
Because 2 of the 3 ingredients are bubbling, the cocktail basically stirs itself. Enjoy!
We make an Aperol Spritz on the Simple Cocktails Podcast….and Greg had to ‘saber’ the bottle! Listen to the action here.
