An Aperol Spritz is the quintessential summer drink! A very festive addition to our July 4th celebration. Absolutely delicious lounging around the pool or at the beach.
Light, delicious Aperol is a bright orange bittersweet apéritif used in Italy to stimulate the appetite before dinner. Now Aperol is the star of the famous Aperol Spritz.
I substituted sparkling Rosé for Prosecco, another favorite summer beverage in the traditional 3-2-1 ratio. You can use any sparkling wine, prosecco, cava, or champagne.
Happy July 4th!
