If vacationing on the Mediterranean isn't in your budget, drinking an Aperol spritz with friends is the next best thing. This cocktail is built around the bittersweet Italian aperitif, Aperol, which is similar to Campari but less bitter and more sweet. The Aperol spritz is light, refreshing, and low proof, so you can drink it all day and night. Whether you're lounging on a beach or vibing at a rooftop party, embrace the dolce vita with this easy Aperol spritz recipe.
- 2 oz Aperol
- 3 oz Prosecco
- 1 oz Soda Water
- Orange Slice or Twist
- Ice Cubes
- Fill a wine glass with ice cubes.
- Add Aperol, followed by Prosecco, and top off with soda water.
- Stir quickly, and garnish with an orange slice or twist.
Pro-Tip For an extra burst of flavor and fragrance, lightly muddle a couple fresh basil leaves before adding the Aperol. This infuses your drink with an herbal twist that'll make it worthy of an Instagram post.
Hot Remix Swap out the Prosecco for sparkling rosé and dance to a different beat with an Aperol Rosé spritz.
