Holding onto Summer: Aperol Spritz Recipe


With what is set to be the last ‘bare legs’ weekend in London I’m determined to hold onto an essence of summer by serving up my favourite summer cocktail. My absolute go-to drink this sunny season has been the super simple to make yet impressive to serve – chilled, sweet and dry Aperol Spritz.

Borne in post war Padua, Italy, the cocktail has become synonymous with summer [although I could see it working just as well as a ‘winter warmer’ at Christmas in a glittering punch bowl garnished with pomegranate seeds and clementines].

To Make an Aperol Spritz
3 Parts Prosecco
2 Parts Aperol
1 Splash of Soda

    I love Spritz! You can make it with Campari as well instead of Aperol, it is a bit more sour, I like it best…keep in mind though that with Campari it is much more alcoholic!
