The Aperol Spritz, also known as the Venetian Spritz, has displaced the Negroni as the most popular aperitivo in Italy. The formula of sparkling wine, soda and a bitter is easy to improvise upon, as I have here in this cocktail I created for the Zwack family's café in Bolgheri. It's right on the mark with low-proof, wine-based cocktails and the amari trend that's happening right now. And, it's a light, effervescent way to kick off your New Year's party.
