Spritzes are one of my favorite signature drinks to make when hosting summer parties. They are super refreshing and easy to customize which means you have a greater opportunity to tailor each drink to your guests’ preferences and make them happy!!
The spritz pictured above is my own unique take on the classic Aperol Spritz. I’m not really big on following recipes and recommend to any hostess to create drinks based on the preference of the recipient. So, with that in mind here are some general guidelines.
Pour Rose Cider over ice, my personal favorite is either Crispin pictured above or Wolffer dry Rose Cider. Then add a splash of Aperol (this is the part where personal preference comes in, Aperol is pretty bitter on its own, but mixes wonderfully with other ingredients, so experiment a little until you find the ratio that is right for you!). Next add sparkling water to top off the glass. I prefer my drinks with a little citrus so I used Lemon Sparkling water, but lime would also be good or you could stick with plain soda water/seltzer.
Now go out there and dazzle your guests!!
