According to Google, what was the highest-trending, most-searched-for cocktail of 2022?

A. Dirty Martini

B. Negroni Sbagliato

C. Gin Caipirinha

D. Aperol Spritz


Well, I was voting for the Negroni Sbagliato (sweet vermouth, Campari, and Prosecco or sparkling wine), but the answer, my cocktail friends, is the Aperol Spritz. Aperol is a light, sweet, reddish, orange-colored Italian aperitif with orange and grapefruit flavors, and a subtle hint of bitter spices. An Aperol Spritz is Apero, Prosecco (or sparkling wine) and club soda.
