When I first arrived in Zurich, this was summer and everybody was drinking an Aperol Spritz on various bar terrasse. This was a new trend for me as I never heard about this cocktail before.
I tasted it and I have to admit. It was delicious. I was very much taken by the simplicity of this cocktail. I am not a really big fan of trends. I always liked to make my own trends. But this drink typical from Venice is too tasty… I love it. This is also becoming a fashion cocktail in France. Do you find often this drink in trendy bars in your home country? This is also a new trend for you?
Anyway this is the perfect summer drink. Imagine yourself on a bench taking some sun next to the limat (the river that flows through the city). At the dynamo, my favourite bar in the city. I am missing Zurich so much right now and summer as well.
You can also add an orange slice to this cocktail to decorate.
