The other day, my friend texted me with what should have been an easy question for a bubbly-drink lover like myself: “I just bought a bottle of Prosecco. What cocktail should I make?”
Had she asked me a few months ago, the answer would have been really obvious. An Aperol Spritz! May through September, the bright orange, just-boozy-enough crowd-pleaser is my pick whenever the occasion calls for bubbles (I’ve yet to meet someone who doesn’t love the drink). But there’s something that just feels off about toasting with a summer-weather refresher when the temperatures are starting to drop.
