yes, Whitney! Warm it will be. I’m totally in summer mode, even though I have no reason to believe it is here.
Kasey: Aperol might be surprisingly easy to find. It is like Campari (I think they are even produced by the same company) and stocked in many liquor stores. You won’t have a problem finding it in San Francisco!
How fun! But, us Seattleites can’t even begin to think about SPRING yet. We had a 3 day Spring (yes, it is almost May), and now we are back to Winter. I will bookmark this and look at it again in July when Seattle gets sunny again:)
Hey Tim! Great idea. Funny thing – Emeril just mentioned this drink on Twitter (that is – if it’s really him!). I simply dismissed it, because I had no idea what he was talking about! But now, with your lovely photos, I might just go for it when the budget allows! Sounds like a wonderful summer drink.
Club specials are always my go to summer cocktail but this is going to get a try…would be great while watching the tornadoes roll through here in Oklahoma, must visit the liqour store today, thanks!!!!
Im so glad u published this! This is a typical italian drink, it is called “Spritz” in italian. it is most popular in the north east, around Venice, where we drink it everyday before dinner. Im italian and this is the taste of my university years in Padua (u dont get drunk with it, its way too nice, but it is a philosophy, a tradition, u meet a lot of people. check “piazza delle erbe” in Padua u’ll see!) Your cocktail looks a bit too pale, instead of squeezing the orange juice, try to cut a thick slice, squeeze it and then splash it in. We drink it without ice, but for making it less strong, sometimes we put less prosecco and some mineral water-with gas. You can also use Campari, i like it better cos it is bitter and taste stronger.
Thanks for such a nice recipe. I just made this drink using blood orange juice. What a pretty color! My husband wanted more alcohol so I added some Tito’s handmade vodka (here in Austin, that’s the only vodka to use) and it became some sort of a screw-mosa. He named it ‘the Dexter’.
