This trendy yet classic Italian aperitif might be enjoyed on a warm afternoon by the beach or before a meal. Aperol, a bright orange bitter liqueur that’s similar to Campari but has a lower alcohol content, is mixed with prosecco for this drink. The traditional recipe often includes just a splash of soda and an orange slice for garnish, but my twist offers a bit more fizz and the refreshing aroma of grapefruit and thyme with each sip.
