The Spritz is a popular ritual! It is undoubtedly the most widespread and commonly drunk aperitif in Italy (not to mention the fastest growing branded cocktail in the UK last year): a traditional ice-breaker and symbol of a lively atmosphere. To encourage your ‘La Dolce Vita’ mindset, we’re sharing 5 simple steps on how to create the perfect Aperol Spritz…
Our teams have been trained by Aperol themselves, giving them the top tips in creating the perfect Spritz.
1. Start with a nice big wine glass
2. Add a good scoop of cubed ice
3. Next, add 3 parts crisp Italian Prosecco
4. Top with 2 parts Aperol
5. Finally, add a splash of soda water and finish with a slice (or two) of fresh orange
Weather permitting, we love to enjoy a Spritz outside alongside a few small plates or starters to kick off the perfect Italian-inspired meal. This July at Strada, you can enjoy 2 of our Italian Spritz cocktails and any 2 freshly prepared small plates for £14.95 when you visit us before 7pm. If you want to try a perfectly crafted Aperol before you have a go yourself, head over to our booking page and reserve a table.
If this has wet your palette, join us at our iconic More London restaurants on 14th and 21st July, as we’ll be bringing a taste of the Italian Summer to this riverside location – head over to Facebook for more details.
