The Ten Best Proseccos for Aperol spritz

Avatar

Aperol spritz is the most famous of the Italian aperitivo drinks. It is made with Prosecco, Aperol (a slightly bitter liqueur), and soda water. The combination of sparkling wine and soda water makes it a light and refreshing drink, while the Aperol gives it a unique orange hue as well as its signature bitter-sweet flavor.

It’s also a drink that has enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent years – particularly in the UK – thanks to its simplicity and Instagram-friendly visual appeal.

The key to a good Aperol spritz is the Prosecco: It needs to be dry enough to balance out the sweetness of the Aperol, but not so dry or austere that it makes for a dull drink.

In this guide, we’ll highlight some of our favorite Prosecco wines for making delicious Aperol spritzes!
