A New Year's Toast with Aperol Spritz

You may be thinking "isn't Aperol Spritz a summer drink?" Yes, it is. But it's also a sparkling wine cocktail, which makes it an ideal drink to toast the new year. I'm not a big champagne drinker, but I like a few bubbles every now and then. Aperol Spritz is made with prosecco, the Italian sparkling wine that's much more affordable than champagne. This simple recipe is adapted from what's printed on every Aperol bottle.

Aperol Spritz

1/2 oz. fresh orange juice
3 oz. prosecco (chilled)
1 oz. Aperol
1-2 oz. club soda
Orange wedge (optional garnish)
