The Aperol Spritz has clearly been the drink of the summer. I’ve seen it everywhere, you’ve seen it everywhere. They event have an @aperolspritzofficial instagram it’s so crazy popular!
Naturally I had to test one out and it’s AMAZING, better than I had expected. By a long shot. It’s unfortunate that it took me until September to try it but hey, better late than never! I’m usually fashionably late anyway.
It’s easily my new favorite drink. I tried a few variations and I realized that I wanted to put my own personal touch on it so I added a bit of tangerine and pomegranate to spruce it up!
An Aperol Spritz is basically Prosecco, Aperol and Soda water. Super easy and suuuuuper good. My take is basically that plus I used Tangerine La Croix instead of soda water and added a little Pomegranate Juice for a tasty twist.
This pairs perfectly with my Summer Heirloom Pesto Pizza or with your favorite light and fruity dessert!
Even though we’re coming up on colder weather y’all should try this drink. It’s really good. REALLY good.
Throw in some orange or pomegranate seeds for color and enjoy! Cheers.
