Aperol Spritz Recipe

How to Make the Trendiest (and Easiest) Summer Cocktail

If the word "aperitif" has been missing missing from your vocabulary, we feel sad for you, but also, get ready to wrap your tounge around it in a big way. Presecco, bitters and spritzes, the typical Italian aperitif (drinks served before food), are super trendy this Summer, none more so than Aperol (they are even a main sponsor of the Australian Open 2017).

We love an Aperol Spritz for two main reasons: it's ultra refreshing (not at all sweet), and it's stupidly easy to make . . . and a really pretty colour. OK, three main reasons. In Australia, it's the perfect afternoon sip — and goes damn well with olives and prosciutto.

Scroll down for the recipe, and enjoy being the hostess who serves the coolest drink this NYE.

Aperol Spritz Recipe


  1. 60ml Aperol
  2. 90ml Prosecco (Riccadonna is perfect)
  3. 30ml soda water
  4. Orange wedge (not slice) for garnish


Build all ingredients over ice in a wine or short glass. If you want to be fancy, or have one handy, use a soda siphon for the soda water.

TIP: No measuring tools? No worries, simply mix 3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol, 1 part soda water (just a splash).

PRO TIP: Add the ice after the Aperol, Prosecco and soda. That way it won't need to be stirred.
