Ina Garten Uses This Citrus For a More Dramatic Aperol Spritz

Summer, for us, is spritzer season. We have no problem sipping a single cocktail on a cozy, cold winter night, but when it’s hot out, you get thirsty. That can make drinking regular-strength cocktails a little risky. You need to stay hydrated, but also want to have fun, and that’s where spritzers come in. They have a lower alcohol content than a traditional cocktail, so you can sip them freely without worrying about getting totally tanked 15 minutes into the barbecue. One of our favorites? An Aperol Spritz, but Ina Garten’s twist makes these Italian spritzers even more party-worthy.
