2-2-2 Aperol Spritz

With this easy-to-remember recipe you can throw together a stunning low-alcohol cocktail in no time.

Light, refreshing with a unique bittersweet taste, Aperol is a must-have ingredient for spring and summer sips on your deck (or inside in your sweatpants). With only 11% ABV it's a wonderful liqueur for crafting low-alcohol drinks. A traditional spritz is made with Aperol, prosecco and soda water. In this recipe we swap out the prosecco for orange juice and decrease the Aperol content to create a lightened up version of the Italian classic.

This recipe is so simple to make... just remember 2-2-2: 2 parts Aperol, 2 parts orange juice, 2 parts soda water.

Orange Aperol Spritz Recipe
A lightened up Aperol Spritz is just as eye-pleasing as it is delicious.

I love this cocktail because it requires no prep ahead of time, no fresh squeezed juices, and can be thrown together in under a minute. Cheers to that!

  • 2 oz orange juice

  • 2 oz soda water (orange-flavored soda water would be delicious here)
