Excellent taste, brought back memories of holidays in Italy in the sun.

3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol, 1 part soda poured over ice - pop in some chunks of orange and an olive on a stick - fantastic!

We have been drinking Aperol across Northern Italy for the last 40 years. Nobody has given the original way we drank Aperol. Take a glass and run a piece of lemon round the rim, then dip the rim in sugar. Then add about a quarter Aperol and three quarters of Soda. It is a very refreshing drink, which is low in alcohol, and so, good for driving.

Discovered this in Verona, a stone's throw from the Arena - very romantic. We saw the locals drinking it and asked what it is - "Spritz Aperol" was the reply, which didn't mean a lot to us, but it was the gorgeous colour which sold it to us. Half an hour later it was 'Due piu, per favore!'

Had this delicious drink in Lido di Jesolo with Prosecco as a spritzer very cheap and refreshing. Sometimes made with Prosecco and sparkling water.

great drink had it in venice as above, but great with dry sparkling rose or champagne add a strawberry and fresh mint and lots of ice.

Had it in Verona, Venice and Padova. A typical venetian drink, though it can also be made with Campari, there is no comparison as to the taste of the Aperol mixed with white wine or prosecco, sparkling water, ice, slice of orange and olive. It is the ultimate jet set drink for a fine warm afternoon in the sun. Also known as Spritz... Wonderful stuff.
- Bruno Pietoso, 13th May '08
Same as above, I had it in Italy and now I am hooked. one third Prosecco, one third Aperol and one third soda water plus ice and a slice and an olive . Its called a Spritz and trust me when I say ...ITS GOOD!!

Wonderful stuff with soda. Had it in Venice and was hooked! They would put an olive on a stick in it too. Great drink for sitting outside in the sun with!
