Happy Hour: Aperol Spritz

The classic Aperol spritz recipe on the back of the Aperol bottle calls for three parts Prosecco (or other sparkling wine), two parts Aperol, and a splash of soda. The concoction is fizzy and vibrantly orange in flavor, softly sweet and just a tiny bit bitter—perfect for sipping before dinner as an aperitivo.

CraveDFW Happy Hour November 4th!

CraveDFW has been running for a dozen years bringing you exciting event news, concerts, great restaurants and more. This is exactly what we planned that many years ago as we sat in a taco shop devising the name and what CraveDFW should be all about. We wanted the reviews to reflect a certain positive note, and they have. We only write about restaurants we love, and leaving the rest for the vultures to chew on – not to say we won’t mention a dish that doesn’t quite make the grade.
