Classic Aperol Spritz Recipe

An Aperol Spritz is the perfect easy-to-make summer cocktail. The bittersweet orange flavor of Aperol pairs well with most food and is also wonderful enjoyed on its own.

I served this cocktail over the August long weekend to a group of friends.


3 oz Prosecco
2 oz Aperol
1 oz Club soda
Orange slice for garnish


Pour the Aperol into a chilled wine glass. Fill the glass with fresh ice then add the prosecco and club soda. Stir to combine all the ingredients and garnish with an orange slice.

To make a lighter and more refreshing variation of this cocktail, double the amount of prosecco and club soda.

To control the sweetness, use a dried orange slice as garnish.
