Aperol Spritz is a refreshing cocktail made of Aperol, Prosecco and soda water. The drink was created in 1917 by Gaspare Campari and Cino Cinelli and became very popular in the 1960s and 1970s due to its simple recipe that could be easily mixed with other ingredients.
For a real Aperol Spritz, dry prosecco is the conventional option. It's generally a little sweeter, which complements the harsh Aperol so well. However, cava, champagne, or any sparkling wine - even a non-alcoholic version - can be substituted.

2 ounces club soda or soda water
Orange peel for garnish
