Spritz: the recipe of the Italian signature cocktail

Last updated on October 23, 2019

The Spritz is the Italian signature cocktail and its recipe is actually very easy as long as you have the right ingredients.

Follow the steps here below to enjoy one of the most appreciated pre-dinner cocktails and to truly experience what the Milanese aperitivo is all about.

The glass

First you need to choose the right glass where to pour all of the ingredients. It needs to be either a rock glass (or old fashioned glass) or a red wine glass. See the gallery here below.

The ice

Fill the glass with ice cubes. They do not need to be excessively big and you must fill just a third of the glass with them  otherwise when they melt they will ruin the flavour of the Spritz. Add a thin slice of orange on top of the ice.

The ingredients

Now pour in this exact same order

75 ml (or 2,5 Oz) of prosecco D.O.C.

50 ml (or 1,7 Oz) of Aperol

25 ml (or 0,85 Oz) of soda

Enjoy and drink responsibly!
