The Perfect Summer Cocktail

Ever since I tasted my first Aperol Spritz, sitting at an outdoor cafe on the banks of the Tiber (our trip to Rome, summer of 2012), it has been my favorite summer cocktail.  So light and refreshing, festive and pretty.

I thought I'd share the recipe I use when making them here at home. Give it a try and discover the taste of summer, dear hearts.

Aperol Spritz

3 parts prosecco
2 parts Aperol (I get mine at BevMo)
1 part club soda
Orange slice, optional 

Pour over ice and if you want to get fancy, top with an orange slice.

To be Rome-authentic, serve in large bowl-style wine glass.
