How to make  the perfect Spritz Veneziano

– Two parts Vero Aperitivo

– Three parts prosecco

– Splash of soda water

Mix all ingredient in a wine glass with crushed ice, gently stir and garnish with a slice of orange.  

Vero brings a taste of Italy to Australia and is made in the Riverina region in New South Wales which is known for its shiraz and cabernet sauvignon wines. 

The bitter orange aperitif is an essential ingredient in the traditional Spritz Veneziano cocktail, popular in Northeast Italy, that first appeared in the 1920s and was originally served before a meal to stimulate the appetite. 

The refreshing orange spritz has become a popular choice among Aussies in the summer recently and is now served at bars, restaurants and sporting events, like the Australian Open, all across the country. 

Coles Liquor Merchandise General Manager, Brad Gorman said Vero Aperitivo brings together Australian style and Italian heritage.

‘Vero brings to life a generations-old aperitif recipe in an authentically Australian way that we know our customers will love,’ he said.  

Vero Aperitivo is available from Liquorland and First Choice Liquor Market.
