The Spritz is a wine-based cocktail popular as an aperitivo in Italy.

It has a relatively low alcohol content and is prepared with prosecco and a dash of aperol. It is generally served in a tumbler or large balloon glass.

The drink is topped off with soda/sparkling water and ice, and garnished with a slice of orange.

There are many variations of the refreshing drink but here is the traditional recipe.


Three parts prosecco

Two parts aperol

One part soda/sparkling water

Slice of orange
