Per cocktail

  • Ice
  • 3 ounces Aperol
  • 3 ounces Dry Prosecco
  • 1 ounce Club soda or unflavoured sparkling water
  • Orange slice for garnish


  • Add ice to a wine glass until it is nearly full. Pour in the Aperol (I usually eyeball this and pour until I’ve filled about one-third of the glass).
  • Pour in an equal amount of Prosecco. Top your drink off with a splash of club soda and add a slice of orange. Enjoy!


Make it less bitter
: Use less Aperol and more Prosecco.
Make it less boozy: Use more club soda, and less Aperol and Prosecco.
