Since summer is all about living easy, why not cheers to the final days with an ice-cold drink that requires hardly any effort to prepare? You're probably familiar with the aperol spritz—the traditional Italian aperitif made of prosecco, Aperol, and a splash of soda—but we've got a brand-new variation that'll make you long for afternoons spent sunning on the beach or floating aimlessly in the water. The so-called Pompel Spritz, dreamed up by mixologist Pamela Wiznitzer of the N.Y.C. cocktail bar Seamstress, swaps sparkling rosé for prosecco and adds grapefruit juice (total game-changer, we know). "It's a great way to put a spin on the classic 3-2-1 recipe," she tells InStyle. Fun fact: "pompelmo" translates to "grapefruit" in Italian). Read on for the full breakdown below.
