Amaro’s herbal and sweet notes go so well with Prosecco. It makes a light yet complex drink that’s less bitter than Aperol.

Yes, it’s very much like the Aperol Spritz, a classic Italian drink that is served all over Italy as an aperitif. We love it and drink it regularly – why not! You might also enjoy this Select Spritz which is a spicier spritz.

If you like Aperol or Campari Spritz, you’re going to really like this Amaro Spritz. It’s made in the same way, with the same ratio or 3-2-1. Super simple. Just 3 part Prosecco, 2 parts Amaro, and 1 part club soda.

Mix it with ice in a large wine glass. Add an orange peel if you want. Enjoy!

What is Amaro?

If you’ve never heard of Amaro, that’s okay. It’s an Italian herbal liqueur that is often consumed as an after dinner digestif. It has a bitter and sweet profile. In fact, the word amaro in Italian means bitter.

Amaro is made with a blend of different herbs, roots, bark, and citrus according to the maker’s preferences. These are infused in alcohol, typically a neutral spirit, and then mixed with sugar to sweeten it. The alcohol is then aged in casks or bottles.

You’ll find Amaro from a many different brands. We like the one from Ramazzotti, which you can find easily. It’s great when served neat with a citrus peel, or mixed into a cocktail or served with tonic.
