Cocktail du jour: Aperol Spritz

Not only are bottles of Aperol plentiful behind the bars in London, but my favorite cocktail actually has its own glassware. On our first night in London we passed by an Italian restaurant near our hotel and out in front was a board advertising their happy hour special, Aperol spritz. So you get one guess where we ate our first meal in the bustling big British city.

I realize this is a repeat of a cocktail I did forever ago in January, but it's really a very summery aperitif meant to be enjoyed during the warm weather. London was suffering from record high temperatures the entire week we were there, so refreshing cocktails were essential.
