There’s a reason the Aperol Spritz is making a comeback. It’s one of the most popular apéritifs in Italy, and it’s as tasty as it is refreshing. Low in alcohol, aromatic with citrus and slightly bitter, Aperol pairs perfectly with chilled prosecco. The Aperol Spritz is as easy to make as it is to drink, meaning it’s perfect for any time of day and any occasion. It doesn’t hurt that it has a gorgeous coral hue.

Meeting friends for an after-work Spritz is a long-established Italian tradition and one that’s easily replicated anywhere.
