The Spritz is one of Venice’s most famous drinks, and perfect for a hot summer day. Here’s how you make one: Start with ice in a tall glass. Add two parts Aperol, the sweetest of the bitter liqueurs. Add three parts Prosecco, a sparkling white wine and a splash of soda. A quick spin and a slice of orange. You can get this classic Venetian cocktail at nearly every bar in Venice.
