Aperol Spritz

Celebrate the End of Summer with This Refreshing and Vibrant Italian Sip

The Aperol, an Italian spritz recipe | Waiting on MarthaAperol spritz recipe | Waiting on Martha

The Aperol Spritz, have you heard of it?  It’s becoming quite the cult obsession.  My husband is obsessed with it and I hear it mentioned more often than any other drink of late. The day I was actually shooting this recipe, I had the Food Network on and spotted two different chefs concocting their own special version of this drink!

But for good reason.  Just as vibrant in taste as appearance, this Aperol Italian spritz recipe is considered the perfect summertime sip; it’s light and refreshing, while it marries crisp notes of citrus and herbs. The alcohol content is typically lower in this cocktail, making it a great  option for all to toast these last warm nights as summer slips away.

Though the classic Aperol doesn’t call for it, I like to add a sprig of thyme to this Italian spritz recipe for that extra hint of freshness.  I always like to incorporate fresh herbs from the garden to take any libation (or any recipe, for that matter) to the next level.  I also just learned the other day that Thyme was once placed under pillows in ancient Europe to help with sleep and ward off nightmares…the more you know!  Cin Cin loves! Truly, MKR
