Spritz cocktails are refreshing and perfect for warm weather. Here’s a simple recipe to make a classic Aperol Spritz, one of the most popular spritz cocktails:


– 3 parts Prosecco (or any sparkling wine)

– 2 parts Aperol

– 1 part soda water

– Ice cubes

– Orange slice, for garnish (optional)


  1. Fill a large wine glass or spritz glass with ice cubes. The glass should be about one-third full.
  2. Add 3 parts Prosecco to the glass. The Prosecco should be poured over the ice.
  3. Add 2 parts Aperol to the glass. Aperol is a bright orange Italian aperitif with a bittersweet taste.
  4. Top off the cocktail with 1 part soda water. This adds a bubbly fizz to the drink.
  5. Gently stir the cocktail to combine the ingredients.
  6. Optionally, garnish the glass with an orange slice for an extra burst of flavor and a colorful touch.
  7. Serve and enjoy your refreshing Aperol Spritz!

Note: Feel free to adjust the ratio of Prosecco, Aperol, and soda water according to your taste preferences. Some people prefer a slightly sweeter or more bitter spritz, so you can experiment with the proportions to find the perfect balance for you. You can also try using different liqueurs like Campari or other sparkling wines for variations on the classic spritz cocktail. Cheers!
