This cocktail is bubbly & super refreshing, perfect for lazy days by the pool and summer brunches! Happy Friday everyone. With the warmer weather here it’s time for one of my all time favorite cocktails…The Aperol Spritz. It’s both beautiful to look at and very tasty.

Have you ever had an Aperol Spritz? It’s a classic aperitif cocktail in Italy and certainly a refreshing drink that should be enjoyed here in the good old USA.

You don’t even need a cocktail shaker for this one. All you need is some bubbly (Proscecco or Champagne) a bottle of Aperol, soda water & ice. You can use any ratio of ingredients you like, but the classic cocktail calls for 3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol & 1 part soda water. Garnish with a juicy orange slice.
