What is Aperol?

What is Aperol you ask? Well, I had a hard time finding it because it’s so popular right now, but there was ONE bottle left in my local liquor store. I was excited to whip up some of these simple skinny cocktails for you!

Aperol is made in Northern Italy with only 11 percent alcohol. It’s a deep orange color and tastes slightly bitter with a hint of sweet. It tastes like a mix of oranges and grapefruit. I read where it also contains rhubarb. Adding it with Prosecco and a splash of sparkling water makes this refreshing very trendy Aperol Spritz!

How to Make an Aperol Spritz

This is the basic recipe for an Aperol Spritz. If you like sweet drinks, I’m warning you that it’s very bitter. Feel free to add a splash of simple syrup or sugar.

I wanted to keep mine low calorie, so just squeezed several orange slices into my glass to make it less bitter. I don’t like sparkling water, but with extra fruit, I enjoyed my Aperol Spritz very much! It’s very refreshing!
