For me, the Aperol Spritz is the quintessential Summer drink. I love nothing more on a searing hot day, than whipping up one of these and taking myself out onto the grass, enjoying the sunset and feel the grass between my toes.

I knew I had to whip up these goodies for The Italy Issue – they found their origin in Venice in the 1920s, where the Barbieri Brothers, who inherited a liquor company from their father, developed the lighter aperitif. it wasn’t however, until the 1950s that the Aperol Spritz really took off, the prospect of a citrus cocktail the most blissful way to spend a Summer Day.

  • 25ml soda water
  • Orange Slice
