The Spritz is a festive cocktail perfect for year round sipping!
Spritz Cocktail perfect for winter, spring, summer or fall!
I have a confession. I’m not a huge fan of champagne. Maybe if I could afford the really good stuff, I would change my mind. What I have found though is that Prosecco makes a mighty fine substitute. A cheaper Prosecco fares much better than a cheaper champagne – or at least that’s my opinion.
Prosecco is perfect for topping off cocktails!
So, for New Year’s Eve we bought a bottle of Prosecco. We ended up having other cocktails through the night and didn’t feel like opening the bottle just for a midnight toast. Turns out that was a very good move on our part. What I found was the Prosecco works as a great topper for a lot of cocktails! Instead of topping with club soda, Prosecco adds a special touch. There are several versions of a Spritz Cocktail, this one is from Saveur Magazine.
- 3 oz Prosecco
- 1 1/2 ounce Aperol
- 1 1/2 ounce soda water
- orange slice to garnish
- Combine the prosecco, aperol and soda water in a glass filled with ice. Garnish with an orange slice.
