Campari Spritz Cocktail Recipe

written by Yummy Editorial 28th September 2017

It would seem that there is no one origin story to this incredibly popular Italian pre-dinner tipple. It is instead generally assumed that in the late 19th and early 20th century, during the Austro-Hungarian empire, Austrians that came to northern Italy were so used to weak beer they felt the wine was too strong and decided to dilute it by spritzing in some soda water. The addition of Aperol happened in the 1930s, although it was in Venice in the 1970s that it shot to prominence and became indelibly associated to this ancient city on the water.


  • 80 mls Prosecco
  • 30 mls Campari or Aperol
  • 30 mls club soda
  • 1 slice orange
  • 1 cup ice cubes


  1. Fill a tumbler with ice cubes. Add Prosecco, Campari and club soda. Stir. Serve garnished with an orange slice.
