About the Event
Prosecco is the base for many Italian Aperitivos: the famous Aperol Spritz, the Bellini, and the less known Hugo Spritz or Negroni Sbagliato. In this online class, Chaney will teach you to make your own Spritz at home. The lecture will include a demonstration of Aperol Spritz and a “Spring Bellini/strawberry Bellini”. She will walk through what makes Prosecco such a perfect ingredient for an afternoon cocktail.
Meghan will lead you through preparing a simple "stuzzichini" based on local ingredients to pair with your sparking aperitivo.

- A shopping list with all of the ingredients they need to purchase
