Summer Sips! Aperol Cocktails and Spritzers Make Summer Evenings Delish!

Aperol is one of the most popular apéritifs in Italy and it is as tasty as it is refreshing. A simple combination of Prosecco, Aperol and one splash of soda water, the Aperol Spritz is a brightly colored, summer phenomenon.

Low in alcohol, the Aperol Spritz is perfect for any time of day or occasion. It doesn’t hurt that that it is low in alcohol either! Asking for another glass has never been more appropriate. Meeting with your best pals for a fresh Spritz, is a long-established Italian tradition that can be shared universally and can now be effortlessly created at home with these recipes.

There’s a reason why the Aperol Spritz is an absolute summer must-have cocktail. Follow these simple recipes from Cal Mare and Bottiglia Enoteca and Cucina below to spark up your summer! Cheers!

These look like stellar cocktails for this weekend, particularly here in Los Angeles where it’s been steamy hot all week long. Collect all the ingredients and mix up both.. and tell me which one you liked better.
Also, either recipe would make a great punch bowl summer cocktail if you were having a group over for dinner or the afternoon.
