Aperol Spritz, A Cocktail for Leo

Leos (July 23 to August 22) are fiery creatures filled with passion, fueled with self-confidence, and unafraid of being the center of attention. Could there really be any other drink to represent the lions of the zodiac than the Aperol Spritz? Leo is already daydreaming about their starring role in a stunning film about life and love in the Italian countryside. Similarly, the spritz is no stranger to the spotlight. It’s the star of every aperitivo hour, its flame-orange color drawing longing glances from sippers of all persuasions. The spritz looks especially fine in the hand of a Leo, arriving fashionably late on their Vespa, hair tantalizingly wind-blown, and an Italian silk scarf fluttering dramatically at their neck. Well hello, gorgeous!
