It all started with an aperol spritz! Or 4! My Italian adventures earlier this summer involved countless aperol spritzers. When I returned to the U.S. I realized that the rest of the world was riding the aperol wave too! These cocktail are everywhere now and truly came out of nowhere. They aren’t overly sweet and actually have a slightly bitter finish, so refreshing for these dog days of summer!
The thing I love about this drinks is it’s awesome to make for parties, so easy and you can throw it all into a pitcher and serve! Plus how pretty are these vibrant orange cocktails?!
One bottle of Aperol (25 ounces, standard bottle size)
One bottle of Prosecco (I love a dry brut!)
3/4 liter of Topo Chico
Ice (I love sonic ice for mine!)
Orange slice for garnish (I like to cut the orange into thin round slices and place directly on top of the cocktail in the cup!)
