This is Elouise’s new favourite cocktail. This is a cocktail that allows you to really taste the wine as the Aperol is not too overpowering but you can still taste its bitterness at the end. A Spritz is an Italian Cocktail that is served as a Apertitif, a drink that is drunk before a meal to stimulate the appetite. That sounds like an excuse to me to drink more cocktails ! Don’t mind if it do! Darling can you make me a cocktail, my appetite needs stimulating !
Traditionally this cocktail uses peach notes, and originated from Venice Italy, after the pink colours in a toga of a 15th Century painting by Giovanni Bellini. This cocktail will pair well on a summers day, with good company and a plate of fresh peaches.
This is a very fresh cocktail where the lemon is the most prominent flavour. We find a nice crisp, fresh cocktail such as this , is a fabulous way to round out Christmas dinner, when you have been over stimulated with rich, full flavours.
