Italian Spritz Punch

Agostino Perrone, head mixologist at London's luxurious Connaught Bar, created this simple sparkling punch. "It would be a great aperitif for a large dinner party," says Wayne Collins; he recommends serving it in teacups.

  • Servings: Makes about 20 drinks


  • 16 ounces Galliano (Italian herbal liqueur)
  • One 750-ml bottle Aperol (bitter orange Italian aperitif)
  • Three 750-ml bottles chilled Prosecco
  • Ice, preferably 1 large block
  • 2 sliced oranges, 2 sliced lemons and 1/2 pint raspberries, for garnish
