The Classic Aperol Spritz

By: the Food Hunter

According to legend, the Aperol Spritz Cocktail dates back to 19th-century northern Italy, where Austrian soldiers added a splash of water to the local wines in order to make them more drinkable. While they may have originated in Italy, these bubbly cocktails have quickly become an international favorite. I particularly like them during the warmer summer months, when sipping a cold, refreshing drink hits the spot.

The Classic Aperol Spritz
  • 3 ounces (1 part) Aperol
  • 3 ounces (1 part) dry Prosecco
  • 1 ounce (a splash) club soda or unflavored sparkling water
  • Orange slice, for garnish


  1. Add ice to a wine glass until it is nearly full. Pour in the Aperol (I usually eyeball this and pour until I’ve filled about one-third of the glass).
  2. Pour in an equal amount of Prosecco. Top your drink off with a splash of club soda and add a slice of orange. Enjoy!
