Aperol Spritz seem to be the latest trend … Seems everyone is obsessed lately, even more in the south of France where I was last week. You could see orange drinks everywhere!
So anyways! I started drinking Aperol Spritz last year with my old aunt – god if she heard me she would totally have me killed!
It is a very refreshing, slightly alcoholic orange taste drink … let me give you the recipe, since getting one in Dublin has a been a bit difficult in my experience – I haven’t given up hope just yet on finding a place in Dublin that can make just the right one – still looking though!
So for those of you who’ve never had one, it is Aperol (an orange liquor), Prosecco and Sparkling water with a lot of ice – yuuum! It is traditionally served with a big slice of Orange.
This drink was massively popular in the 50’s – yup the drink has been around for a while, mom also said to me … ‘Buuuuuut that’s an old peoples drink’ mind you mom is 60 years old – LOL
Check out this video which shows you how to make one
