Background & History
The Aperol Spritz is a popular apéritif, perfect for warmer weather. Its origin is in northern Italy, and was even considered one of the most popular cocktails in the world in 2019. We’ve concocted a delicious twist on the Aperol Spritz, giving it a zesty summer flavor.
2 ounces Aperol
1/2 ounce gin
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1 egg white
Strip of lemon peel, for garnish
Add the Aperol, gin, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white to a cocktail shaker. Add ice. Shake hard for at least a minute until chilled and lightly frothy. Strain into a chilled glass and top with a twist of lemon peel. Serve immediately.
