First popularized in 1950s Italy, the Aperol Spritz has made a global comeback in a big way. From rooftop parties in London to poolside lounging in Miami, the orange libation has become this year’s go-to drink of glamorous trendsetters worldwide.
An aperitif that blends together bitter orange, rhubarb and other herbs, Aperol was originally produced in Padua in the early 1900s but didn't gain a wide following until after World War II. Today, it's known worldwide as a spirit associated with fashion, friends and a modern globetrotting lifestyle.
Of course, we're partial to any drink that goes so perfectly with our logo and the colorful orange soles of our bestselling Breeze Penny and Breeze Leap Laser. We can't think of anything better than sipping an Aperol Spritz with friends, a gentle ocean breeze keeping us cool as the sun begins to set on another remarkable day.
Entertaining at home? The Aperol Spritz is a sure winner and super easy to prepare. Just follow these simple directions:
- Club soda
- Orange slices
In a large pitcher, combine 2 parts Aperol, 3 parts Prosecco and 1 part Club Soda. Stir gently and serve over ice in large goblet wine glasses. Garnish each drink with a slice of orange.
Cheers to the good life!
