Although late to the game, I am now fully invested in the summer “It” drink, the Aperol Spritz. Last year, I saw the bright orange drink everywhere I went, but never tried it. I started during our recent trip to Europe, and now I can’t stop. Aperol Spritz is made with aperol (a liquor), prosecco, a splash of soda, and some fresh orange. It is refreshing, zesty, sparkly, and basically makes you feel like you are drinking an orange Fanta. OH SO GOOD.
I am now on a mission to find the best Aperol Spritz in Eugene, Oregon….which, cough cough, might be difficult. The Willamette Valley is known for its pinot noirs and its beer, but not necessarily its drinks. That said, I will find the best one. Have a great weekend! And drink up!
