WHERE: Canale, Italy
WHY: I'm sure there are all sorts of yummy things you can do with Aperol, but if you only get one drink out of this, the simple Aperol spritz, then my work here is done. Aperol, Prosecco, soda, etc, etc: I've yet to serve one of these effervescent appetite whetters that didn't get drained post-haste, usually followed by, "Oh, if you're making another..." type noises. The recipe's right on the bottle. On its own as an aperitif, it's quite sweet and only slightly bitter. Spritz it!
