How to Make a “Bloody Spritz” Aperitivo

A cherry dessert wine from Le Marche combined with Prosecco makes this week's aperitivo.

cherry spritz ingredients

Our aperitivo expert, Riccardo Massetti of Cremini’s Aperitivo & Kitchen in Brooklyn, shares his original recipe for a unique cocktail featuring Visciole, a type of wine aromatized with cherry syrup. The drink combines a jigger of Visciole topped with Prosecco to taste. Call it a cherry spritz or a "Bloody Spritz," if you will, and add this to your repertoire of spritz variations.
