Aperol Spritz is a classic Italian cocktail that has gained popularity around the world in recent years. It’s a refreshing and easy-to-drink option that’s perfect for sipping on a warm summer day. Traditionally, Aperol Spritz is made with Prosecco, but in this version, we’ve swapped in Sauvignon Blanc for a twist on the classic recipe.
Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp and refreshing white wine that pairs well with the bitter, orange flavors of Aperol. The combination of these two ingredients creates a well-balanced cocktail that’s both refreshing and flavorful. The club soda adds a bit of fizz and helps to cut through the sweetness of the Aperol.
Why should you try this version of the Aperol Spritz? For one, it’s a great way to mix up your cocktail routine and try something new. Plus, it’s an easy and elegant cocktail that’s perfect for serving at a dinner party or barbecue. So next time you’re in the mood for a refreshing drink, give this Aperol Spritz with Sauvignon Blanc a try!
