Easy and refreshing, the Aperol Spritz is a drink you will want to try, and it may quickly become your favorite dinner party aperitif.

It is a simple drink to construct, and it is important to note ​the order of the pour here. The ice and orange go in first, then the sparkling Italian wine, then Aperol. The drink is not typically stirred, relying on the bubbles of the wine and soda to do the mixing. The soda (club soda or soda water) is also here to ensure that the Aperol doesn't sink, instead is sort of suspended between the bubbles and allowed to slowly integrate naturally.

The Aperol Spritz is a classic way to enjoy the orange-flavored bitter aperitif and a great introduction as well.
