Author Notes: I like this in a very large wine glass, with lots of ice, on a hot day. Soda water is superfluous here. Wear sunscreen.Marian Bull

Serves 1

  • A few large cubes of ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces Aperol
  • Prosecco (I usually grab a bottle between $10 and $15)
  • Orange wedge or twist, for garnish
  1. Pour your Aperol over ice in a large wine glass, tumbler, or whatever vessel you like. (Mason jar? Sure.) Top with Prosecco, about 3 ounces, or until the mixture is a color that makes you happy.
  2. Garnish with orange, and serve. Be sure to have extra orange slices on hand -- you're going to want a second.

One of our favorite summer cocktails also. One addition is we add a half ounce of St. Germaine (elderberry liqueur) and use the sparkling water.

I've never tried that but my gut response is "sure why not!"

Finding the Aperol in State Liquor stores can be a chore at times.

Me too! Next time you're in the city we'll drink them. (Book party refreshments???)

I agree: Skip the soda water. This is the best summer drink ever.
