Slightly sweet, herbal, refreshing and quaffable.
The good folk at Aperol recommend equal parts prosecco and Aperol topped with a splash of soda. However, we've stuck with our preferred 3:2:1 ratio which is a little lighter on Aperol and noticeably fizzier. Along with specifying how you want your steak done and preferred Dry Martini ratio perhaps also stipulate your Aperol Spritz ratio.
Soave is sometimes substituted for prosecco to produce a drier spritz.
Our Spritz page contains information on the history of, and other recipes for, the Spritz family of cocktails.
