For some crazy reason I have been craving an Aperol Spritz in a bad way. Like not just craving but obsessing about sipping one.
I wake up thinking about it, I spend the day fantasizing about it and at night my dreams are filled with Aperol Spritz fantasies. I have no idea where this sudden hankering came from- I’m usually more of a tequila based drink kind of gal- but it’s here and it won’t let up.
I’m so thirsty that my outfits are even starting to resemble and Aperol Spritz.
If you haven’t tried one before, I highly recommend you give it a sip. The orange-red cocktail is reminiscent of an Italian soda and combines just three ingredients: Aperol, Prosecco and soda water.
As pretty to drink as it is to look at, an Aperol Spritz is pleasantly citrusy, perfectly bubbly, slightly bitter and the orangey hue is an instant mood booster. You need absolutely NO bar skills to make a spritz. It’s so easy!
- 2 oz Prosecco – Can’t find any? Don’t like Prosecco? Use Champagne or Cremant de Loire instead for a dry taste, or Moscato d-Asti if you want a sweeter flavor.
- 2 oz Aperol – The namesake of the recipe!
- A Splash of Soda – Soda water or sparkling water. Feel free to use flavored sparkling water, ideally citrus, for some extra flavor.
- Orange – Freshly sliced for garnish. I like blood oranges because of their deep rich beautiful color.
Fill a wine glass with ice. Add the Prosecco first, then Aperol, and finally soda. Stir gently and garnish with a fresh orange wheel.
We finally made our weekly grocery trip and I scored a bottle of Aperol! Whoo Hoo! I’ll be mixing these babies up on Easter morning for a two person boozy brunch with my hubby and I’ll be wearing this Aperol Spritz inspired outfit.
