Beth’s Favorite Spritz – Pick your poison: Aperol or Campari
Pick up or order your ingredients advance, and mix along with us! We’ll also be playing some sort of game (TBD).
- Campari or Aperol (see below for differences)
- Soda Water
- Sparkling Wine (Prosecco recommended)
- Orange slice
Add 2 ounces of either Campari or Aperol to a glass with ice and swirl to chill. Add 1 ounce of soda water, followed by 2 ounces of sparkling water, which will help to mix. Gently squeeze your orange slice over the top to release some of the juice, and use it as a garnish on the rim.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAMPARI AND APEROL?
Campari is bright red and tastes very bitter, with sweet notes like cherry, clove, cinnamon and orange peel. It has a higher alcohol content (48 proof).
Aperol is bright orange and some consider it easier to drink than Campari: the flavor is sweeter and more balanced, with notes of herbs. It has a lower alcohol content (22 proof).
