Italian Day 2019: Drink of the Week—Aperol Spritz

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Starting in 1912, it took seven years of experimentation for Padua, Italy–based brothers Luigi and Silvio Barbieri to create Aperol, a bittersweet, bright-orange apéritif.

      A century later, the liqueur stars in one of the world’s most popular cocktails: the Aperol Spritz.

      Di Beppe Restaurant and its sister eatery, Ask for Luigi, make large batches that get bottled into individual servings. Here’s the classic recipe. Cin cin!

      Aperol Spritz

      3 oz Prosecco
      2 oz Aperol
      1 oz soda water

      Fill a wineglass with ice. Add ingredients, stir, and garnish with an orange peel or twist.
