Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
  • If you are not a fan of fresh mint or you can't find fresh mint in your market, this drink is also fantastic with sprigs of fresh rosemary.
  • If you like your drinks a bit sweeter, add a tablespoon of simple syrup.
  • This is a great cocktail to make by the pitcher. Simply place all of the ingredients, except ice, into a pitcher. Serve it over ice and garnish with mint or rosemary.
  • If you go to Italy and see Spritz Veneziano on the menu, order it! It's Italian for Aperol Spritz.
