Aperol Spritz Recipe

Just a little bitter, just a little sweet, and irresistible any time of day.

An Aperol spritz in a Collins glass with a lime wheel.

Serious Eats / Robyn Lee

A Roman friend of mine drinks these fizzy aperitifs all summer; they're perfect for sipping as the afternoon heat dies down and you're trying to figure out where to go for dinner. The Aperol Spritz is a bit more adult than a soda, but still sweet and friendly, orange-and-rhubarb flavored with just a hint of grapefruit-rind bitterness.

You can taste the Prosecco, but you certainly don't have to use something fancy.

If you want to move over to the bitter side, try the Aperol Spritz's big brother, the Campari Spritz.
