As we've been traveling lately, Germany, Italy, and now Austria, we've noticed people sipping bright orange (almost day-glow) cocktails.
A little detective work and now we've joined the ranks with the Aperol Spritz.
Aperol is an Italian apertif made with bitter orange, rhubarb, and cinchona (the source of quinine). The end result when mixed with proseco and sparkling water is a light, refreshing drink that isn't at all sweet. The flavors make me think of tonic water flavored with a hint of orange marmalade. Want to give it a try?
Chill all of your bottles and combine:
3 parts proseco
2 parts Aperol
1 part sparkling water (club soda)
