New Competition: Win an Aperol Spritz Kit

So, you've just read today's post on the new Aperol Spritz Social bar at Spinningfields, and are now embarking upon one of two possible courses of action. Some of you will have noted that the sun is now shining, and are halfway to Spinningfields already, leaving nothing but a cloud of speedy dust in your wake as you bear down on the bartender with a fist full of cash ready to be swapped for Aperol. Some of you though will be wringing your hands in anguish, crying "Liz! It DOES sound amazing, but I have work tomorrow/am mourning the demise of Rafael Nadal/am engaged in a Breaking Bad marathon/fear the pyjamas I am currently sporting are unsuitable attire for a nice bar*"

Fortunately, help is at hand, for you can win yourself all you need to make a whole phalanx of Aperol Spritzes right HERE. I have two Aperol Spritz Kits to give away, each including 1 bottle Aperol, 1 bottle Prosecco and 1 bottle Soda water, and it really couldn't be easier: just read the following, and then answer the devastatingly difficult question at the end.

How to make (Competition Kit includes the below)
Making an Aperol Spritz is as easy as 3, 2, 1 - just get a large wine glass and follow the simple instructions:
Add 3 parts of Prosecco or any other dry sparkling wine to a wine glass
Next add 2 parts of Aperol
Add 1 splash of soda
And top with Ice cubes and a slice of orange

Sunny and full of vitality, the achingly hip and unique Aperol Spritz taste is deliciously Italian but with total international appeal, fast becoming a cult aperitif in the UK, as well as throughout Europe and across all continents. To win one of two Aperol Spritz Kits, containing everything you need to create the perfect Aperol Spritz at home, all you need to do is answer this question:

What proportion of Prosecco to Aperol to Soda Water makes the perfect Aperol Spritz?

To be in with a chance of winning, simply email your answer to by midnight on Friday 5th July, when two winners will be drawn at random. Good luck!
