(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #216 – An Italian Spritz

Spritz in Florence

It is now summer in San Francisco. Happens every October. It will be warm (hot for me) and gorgeous until Halloween and then it will rain!

Warm weather like we are having now makes me long for ‘spritz’s’ which I drank many of on my trip to Italy.  Such a wonderfully refreshing drink that people have as an apero before dinner.  It is addictingly delicious!

Here is a recipe from The Kitchn – I plan on making some this weekend!

How about you? What are you drinking this weekend?

    I have never heard of Aper.ol before but this recipe sounds very refreshing. Thank you for sharing. This is probably as close as I will get to Italy.

  2. Jenn Erin says:

    I could use a ‘spritz’ right now too – it looks really refreshing!!

  3. Love spritz! Living in Southern California, even in fall, you’ve got to cool off somehow!

  4. I haven’t had a spritz in years – must have one soon!

  5. Sarah Elyce says:

    This looks yummy and definitely refreshing.

  6. Gail Williams says:

    I love your photography! Makes the food and drink so appetizing.

  7. Michelle S says:

    That looks delish and refreshing! Thanks for the recipe!

  8. Cindy Merrill says:

    This drink reminds me of a “Cranberry” coast ( Dry sherry with cranberry juice): Refreshing and not too sweet.

  9. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    I am happy that it is so nice for you there now. I love the rain but to much of it makes me depressed. I need to see the sun shine

      @Linda, it is already cold! Hopefully it will only last a day or two and then we will be back to our Indian summer!

  10. Seyma Shabbir says:

    I love Spritz and make them at home with my sodastream. I don;t drink alcohol so this is a great way to make wonderful drinks for the family!

  11. Thank you for sharing!!

  12. Seyma Shabbir says:

    I just mix fruit juice and seltzer water. I have used fresh fruit juice and seltzer, kool aid and seltzer, etc. My sons and I love lemonade or limeade and seltzer. Cherry and seltzer or blood orange and seltzer is amazing also!! Always add sugar to sweeten!

  13. Thanks for the recipe link, sounds yum!

  14. Thanks for the recipe! Sounds delicious and refreshing!

  15. I don’t remember the last time I had a spritz. I’m usually aiming for a sangria that’s just crisp in flavor and not overly sweet.

  16. Christina Strapp Lambert says:

    I have never heard of the Aperol Spritz but man it sounds so good.

  17. It’s going to be 70 degrees on the east coast tomorrow. I think a spritz is definitely in order!

  18. I tried a spritz when I was in Venice this summer and I actually wasn’t much of a fan. Perhaps it was the sad Airport Hampton Inn lounge that I was sitting in stranded with 3 kids, not enough money to take a taxi, and no other restaurants in walking distance. Your experience sounds much better. I need to give it another try with that recipe you linked to.

    I need to try that drink. I don’t mind when it rains, its usually overcast so it’s easy on the eyes.
