Are all of your friends drinking Aperol Spritz cocktails this summer?
The trend that we have the Italians to thank actually started anew in the U.S. a few years ago.
I reviewed a book devoted to the Spritz, a mix of bitter citrus liquor, prosecco and soda water, back when it was published in 2016. Spritz was written by Talia Baiocchi and Leslie Pariseau.
After reading about how the spritz is overtaking the rose as the drink of summer, I thought I’d update this review and re-post it.
Spritz the book traces the history and popularity of Italy’s aperitivo cocktail, which can take many forms depending on where you are. It includes recipes for the drinks as well as nibbles to accompany them.
If I’m being honest, I’m more of a martini girl than a spritz. This is my favorite martini recipe ever.
