"In terms of the classic spritz, the main thing that distinguishes one spritz from another is the type of aperitif (aperitivo in Italian) used to make it. The two most common aperitifs are Aperol and Campari, but these days, there are myriad options out there that range from sweet to bittersweet to just plain bitter.
60 ml aperol
90 ml prosecco
1 spring basil
1 slice of blood orange
For a lighter version, add a splash of club soda to top it off. Depending on the sweetness of your wine and the aperitif you choose, you may want to add more or less until it tastes right to you."
"It's an absolute summer classic I typically crave whenever reaching the Italian borders to celebrate a visit to the atelier in Florence; a new collection in the making. To enjoy a Negroni you need to embrace the smokey bitterness of the mixture.
30 ml Campari
30 ml Gin
Serve with a peeled orange skin after perfuming the edges of your glass with its fruity note. Cheers!"
"If you are looking for a fresh, alcohol free alternative, try this revisited Hugo with
2 cl Elderflower syrup
ca. 160 ml lemonade (instead of Prosseco)
Juice of 1 fresh lime
Branch of fresh mint
Sip this flowery potion in the shades with a few ice cubes."
