Hot Spritz, the perfect alternative to mulled wine

hot spritzer

Few ingredients, the same as the classic recipe, but served hot and flavored with cinnamon. We are talking about the hot spritzer.

The cold season calls for hot drinks and to want to identify one that has always been considered the symbol of winter, we cannot fail to mention mulled wine . In fact, however, this drink has no appeal to the new generations and this is why the hot spritz was born, a drink based on Aperol and prosecco like the traditional one but served hot with typically winter aromas such as cinnamon.

It seems to have been born at the Christmas markets in Vienna where it was served accompanied by a slice of toasted orange or a cinnamon stick. The result immediately conquered the younger public, eager to find an alternative to the summer spritz.

How to prepare the hot spritz recipe

  1. Heat the prosecco without letting it reach a boil or it will lose its alcoholic content.
  2. Then pour it into glasses , dividing it into equal parts, and complete by pouring, always in equal parts, the orange juice, soda and aperol.
  3. Mix everything with the cinnamon stick, which you will leave to infuse, and serve decorating the glass with the orange slice.

Some add ice cubes but it goes without saying that this way the spritz will no longer be hot. Also, as it melts, the ice will dilute your delicious drink. Furthermore, if you prefer a hotter cocktail, you can also heat the orange juice together with the prosecco and then add it all to the aperol.
