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
In This Recipe
  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.
