Hot Spritz for an Enchanting Winter

A warm and enchanting twist on the traditional Spritz, this cocktail transports you to the heart of winter by blending the sweetness of honey with the bitterness of Aperol, complemented by a hint of orange. A flavorful escape to savor by a fireplace or on a chilly evening.

If you desire a touch of effervescence, you can add a splash of sparkling water just before serving. This will give your warm winter Spritz a slight sparkle.
