A Spritz That’s The Perfect Sip

Each season, we like to change our drink up. After a spring of sipping tequila and grapefruit, we were thrilled to be reminded of one of our all-time favorite drinks: The Spritz. Spritzes are a favorite in Italy, where lazy late morning espressos on the piazza easily give way to early afternoon Spritz drinking. Spritzes can be made two ways — with Prosecco and Aperol if you prefer it a bit on the softer side, or with Prosecco and Campari, if you like your drink with a bit more bite. We’ve always like the more-drinkable Aperol version, which is why we’re practically ready to marry Mionetto’s new pre-made Il Spr!z cocktail. Perfect when you want a cocktail on the go — say if you’re surreptitiously sneaking one into a movie, or on a picnic at the beach (not that we’re advocating you do anything illegal) — Mionetto’s Il Spr!z comes in individual mini bottles and in a larger size for sharing. Not that you’ll want to, or anything. [Jericho Wines and Liquors, $11.99]
