I knew nothing about the Aperol Spritz cocktail. In fact, two months ago I didn't even know such a thing existed ... But, since my husband and I decided to go out into the world more often and the first serious outing was in Venice, I said I'd try some more sophisticated stuff ... This Aperol Spritz cocktail is a classic in Italy, it can be seen anywhere in cafes and restaurants and it caught my attention at once.
There, they would serve it with half a slice of lemon in it and with a green olive. After studying the recipe on the internet, I noticed that it's a bit wrong, and below I will show you the classic recipe.
When we returned home, the first thing we did was to make good supplies of Prosecco and Aperol (it takes longer to consume, so you can also get a small bottle). Now, in our house, Aperol Spritz is in high demand. It's simple, very beautiful, with an interesting taste and aroma. You can adjust the quantities of the 3 basic ingredients to taste.
I haven't tried to replace the Aperol with Campari so far, but I understand it is possible and this is yet another version.
