Aperol Spritz

Aperol Spritz

I discovered Aperol Spritz on a visit to Stockholm a few years ago where it was advertised in the window of almost every restaurant.
Aperol is an Italian orange-flavored alcohol that makes the perfect cocktail for a hot summer day!
Aperol has more of a bitter orange taste. You can use Campari if you want a more sweet-tart flavor.

  1. This has a nice flavor but is a little sweet for me. I guess additional club soda or Prosecco might help.

    • Adding extra club soda will cut the sweetness for sure. We like Le Croix plain club soda.
