The simple Prosecco cocktail known as the Aperol Spritz is an Italian classic. And it blends two of our favorite things: sparkling wine and simplicity. The drink requires only three ingredients, including the lovely aperitif Aperol. (Aperol is made with a blend of orange, herbs and a secret ingredient that gives it a distinctive flavor.) We like serving these on a Friday afternoon, especially in spring and summer. The drink is crisp, refreshing and feels like a throwback from a more carefree time. Best of all, it’s one of the lowest alcohol cocktails you could possibly make–so save room for a second round.
