A visit to Lake Como, Italy is only complete when watching the sunset with an Aperol Spritz or glass of prosecco in hand. Perfection!
Aperol is a bittersweet botanical liqueur. It tastes a bit like bitter orange, and for some, the bitter flavor is a bit much, so you can reduce the ratio of Aperol to prosecco in this cocktail. Or skip the Aperol and just drink prosecco. 😉
The Aperol Spritz is an Italian staple of after-work drinks and is the perfect summer cocktail. Best enjoyed at a lakeside bar on Lake Como, of course.
