I spent two months over June and July in Tuscany, where I became acquainted with the best summer drink- the Aperol spritz. It became a definitive smell and taste that forever will take me back to the languid heat of Villa Lena and what that experience meant to me both creatively and personally. As, the southern hemisphere heats up for our summer fun, I would like to share this easy drinking treat ( see recipe below), and encourage you to have a little sensual seaside fun and get up to some mischief this silly season..
