This classic Italian apéritif isn’t just good before a meal—it’s always spritz-o-clock in my book. You can use soda water instead of the prosecco, but it’s much more fun to triple down on the alcohol.
MAKES 2 DRINKS
6 ounces Aperol
4 ounces prosecco or soda water
1 (12-ounce) can orange hard seltzer
orange wedges, for garnish
✦ Fill two glasses with ice. Split the Aperol between the glasses (3 ounces each).
✦ Split the prosecco or soda water between the glasses (2 ounces each).
✦ Top each glass with half a can (6 ounces) of seltzer. Garnish each glass with an orange wedge.
