Several Italian regions lay claim to the origins of the Spritz. In fact, the proportions and the ingredients differ vastly from area to area. While Venetians might use Aperol and Prosecco, Paduans might mix still white wine with Campari. We like this version with Aperol and sparkling wine. Whether you use still or sparkling wine, or your bitter apéritif is Aperol, Campari, or Cynar, top it with soda water and you’ve got a Spritz.

Tips for Christmas

Instructions

Pour the Aperol into a champagne flute. Add the Prosecco and top with a splash of soda water. Garnish with a lemon or orange slice and serve.
