Also called Venetian Spritz, the aperol spritz drink is a cocktail originating in Italy, created with prosecco, Italian sparkling wine, aperol and sparkling water.

Very popular on hot summer days and often consumed at happy hours, as, due to its popularity among Italians, it has earned the nickname spritz hour.

Usually served in large wine glasses, this aperol spritz drink is one of the simplest drinks to produce, as we will see below.

In addition, it has ingredients found in everyday life, without any difficulty when buying, since they are cheap and are sold in any supermarket.

However, some care must be taken, as this drink cannot take little ice and these ingredients must be placed well at the bottom of the glasses.

Another important consideration is the necessary use of dry sparkling wine to counterbalance the sweetness found in the Aperol bottle.


  • 3 parts sparkling wine
  • 2 parts of Aperol
  • 1 part sparkling water
  • Ice


  1. Place all the ingredients in a large glass with ice, garnish with an orange slice and serve.
  2. If you want the most bitter drink, don't add the orange.
