    The best Aperol Spritz recipe

    The Aperol Spritz is probably the ultimate Italian aperitif! The Spritz was born in Venice in the 19th century. However, it has evolved a lot over the years. At the very beginning, it was just a dash of sparkling water added to a glass of white wine. Later, Aperol, the Italian bitter liqueur, was added. Finally, Prosecco replaced the white wine and the Aperol Spritz as we know it today was born!

    The Aperol Spritz is perfect to enjoy as an aperitif. Not too sweet, not too bitter, you’ll love it! Moreover, you can adjust the quantity of sparkling water to lengthen the alcohol. You can always garnish your drink with a slice or two of orange for a nice decoration!

    In partnership with Monsieur Cocktail, BPT presents its version of the Aperol Spritz. We add a dash of grapefruit syrup, and it’s really delicious. Beware! For bitter lovers only! You can also make a strawberry version of this cocktail! A strawberry Aperol Spritz is a real treat!

  • Lipids
    - g
    Lipids (fats) are essential to your body. They are an important source of energy. However, an excessive consumption is associated with weight gain and higher risks of chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Unsaturated fats are preferable to saturated or trans fats.
  • Saturated fats
    - g
    Saturated fats, commonly known as “bad fats”, are mostly found in processed foods and in some products of animal origin. If consumed in excess, they can have adverse effects on cardiovascular health, including increases in LDL-cholesterol levels. Try to eat better lipids such as those found in fish, nuts, oilseeds, and oils!
  • Cholesterol

  • Sodium
    - mg
    In small quantities, sodium is an essential nutrient for your body. However, you probably eat too much of it without even being aware, and this overconsumption can have adverse effects on your health. Indeed, excess sodium targets organs and can lead to hypertension.

As for insoluble fibers, they increase stool bulk and regulate bowel function. Since they slow down the digestion process, they promote satiety, which contributes to appetite and weight control. You should consume at least 30 g everyday.
