Spritzing For a murder

-1oz Azzuro or Aperol (bitter orange liqueur)

-1oz Pineapple Juice

-2-3 Dashes Grapefruit Bitters

-2-3 Dashes Cardamom Bitters

-2oz Prosecco

-2oz Fever Tree Club Soda

-Garnish: Lemon and Orange Slices

Take a large stemmed wine glass and fill with crushed ice. Pour in Azzuro/Aperol, pineapple juice, and bitters. Gently stir and then top with prosecco and club soda. Garnish with lemon and orange slices. Serve with a straw.

Notes: Aperol is a very well know Italian label but not the liqueur itself. You will find Aperol, Azzuro, and other bitter orange liqueur under Aperitif in a liquor store or sometimes under cordials. If you want a stronger drink vs a light pre dinner cocktail forgo the club soda and use 4oz of prosecco.
