It is the time of year where everything turns orange (koningendag). The time when inevitably the people who control the posters in the city, decide it is time to bombard me with the only advertisement that gets me going. Usually, I don't really care what they put up - (I said, usually). But when this "orangy" looking one is placed right at 20 steps from my doorway, I can't help but dream of Venice (Italy) and my favorite drink in the whole wide world. And it gets me! This poster does work its little magic on me.
Curious to make it?
3 parts Prosecco
2 parts Aperol or Campari if you prefer it a lot more bitter
1 part sparkling water
and garnish with a piece of orange ( I like it much better with olives, but for the sake of the "real" spritz I placed a piece of orange).
This is a very easy drink, and light (just how I like them), and it is better just to eyeball it. If you like it bitter then make it really orange, if not then make it light, simple as that!
The poster that I can blame all my spritz cravings on, and here I was thinking I was completely immune to advertisements. Can you spot me in the glass?? I'm already there in the drink!
I'd love to know what sort of ads get to you? Which ones are calling your name, if any are?
Be happy, and drink wisely/safely.
** And yes, I even own a glass that says; "aperol, spritz."
