Allan's Spritz Aperol

Author Notes: My friends Allan and John just returned from a trip to Venice, Italy. While in Venice, they noticed people ordering large pitchers filled with an orange liquid. The beverage turned out to be not Orange Kool-Aid, but Spritz Aperol.

Aperol comes from Padua and was originally created in 1919. Some of the ingredients are bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and cinchona.

As Allan says: "One of the things we like about it is that it's light in both flavor and
alcohol--a change from our usual brain-numbing martinis--giving us a gentler
launch into the evening."

I looked online, and didn't see Allans's recipe so give him full credit! It also counts as a punch because it has fruit in it!

You will see a picture when I have luck in uploading it.
