Cocktail du jour: Aperol Spritz

Mr. C&G has some mad bar tending skills (of course!). So with three feet of snow deposited on our doorstep today I was in need of some major cheering up around cocktail hour. Thankfully we had the ingredients for my favorite summertime aperitif. An Aperol Spritz takes me back to our summer adventure on Lake Como. So if I close my eyes, take a sip, I can pretend I'm back on the patio at the gorgeous Hotel Belvedere in Bellagio, Italy. And not stranded in our house, surrounded by crazy children and their epic Lego battles . . . 
Ahhh. . . that's better! Cheers!

Aperol Spritz:
3 parts Prosecco
2 parts Aperol
1 splash soda water
Orange garnish


  1. Merci de partager la recette, ce cocktail a l'air delicieux! :)

  2. It's not even 7am and I could sure go for one. Sounds like breakfast, no?
