The Spritz Veneziano, sometimes referred to as just Spritz or Veneziano, is a wine based cocktail commonly served as a pre-dinner drink. Starting with prosecco, a dash of Aperol is added. This can be substituted for a different bitter liqueur, such as Campari, Cynar or Select. The cocktail is served over ice in an Old Fashioned glass and garnished with a wedge of orange.
