Summer has arrived, and I couldn’t be happier. Even though I don’t technically have summer vacation like I did when I was in school, there’s just something about the way summer feels that’s always made me feel more relaxed. Maybe it’s the fact that I find myself next to a pool most weekends or maybe it’s the relaxed work hours, but summer just feels more chill.
Each summer, I find myself almost exclusively ordering one drink when I go out. Last year, it was a margarita with mezcal, but this year, I can’t help but gravitate towards Aperol Spritzes. What’s an Aperol Spritz, you ask? It’s a simple combination of Aperol, Sparkling Wine and sparkling water. Plus, it’s low alcohol, which makes it perfect for sipping on those extra hot days.
