Aperol Spritz with a Twist

Who doesn’t love a spritz on a warm summer evening with friends! Make a big pitcher or individual glasses if that’s your preference.

My Aperol Spritz is a little different from the traditional spritz. I add a drop of bitters AND vodka, yes, you heard it right! Feel free to omit the vodka and add Aperol instead for a sweeter flavor. I also added a couple drops of Aromatic Bitters.
