cocktail friend: to spritz or not to spritz

If you walk through a piazza at apertivo hour in Italy, it’s a sea of orange with this cocktail in seemingly every table. The trend has caught fire stateside too and has even sparked a fierce debate over if it’s good or if it sucks. Grapefriend has been drinking them for years since the slight bitterness is an excellent refresher after a day of wine tasting. I recently hd a great one at The Mermaid Inn (not overly heavy on the Aperol), but here’s the recipe so you can make them yourself:
    • 2 parts Aperol
    • 3 parts Prosecco
    • Splash of soda water
    • Orange slice for garnish
