I’m taking a break from the Snowberry Cottage Renovation to share my favorite fall cocktail.
The Aperol Spritz
The White Wine Spritzer is my drink of summer, and the Aperol Spritz is my drink of fall.
Spritzers have made a comeback. And, not a moment too soon. What do I love about them?
They’re light (low alcohol), refreshing, and bubbly.
Bubbles make everything more festive.
Last but not least, they’re easy.
Equal parts Aperol, Prosecco and fizzy water.
Oh, and the color! It’s gorgeous … like a sunset or turning leaves.
Here in Northern California we have lovely, warm weather through October … it’s not unusual to enjoy cocktails and dinner outside through November.
Even December. Firepits and outdoor heaters help.
Here’s how I make an Aperol Spritz:
- 2-3 oz Aperol
- 2-3 oz Prosecco
- 2-3 oz Sparkling Water or Club Soda
- Orange Wheel
- Fill a wine glass with ice
- Add Aperol, Prosecco and Sparkling Water (or Club Soda) in order
- Garnish with orange wheel
A word about blogging. Today I planned to post Snowberry’s Fall Home Tour aka less-is-more fall décor.
Technical difficulties (ahem … my technical ineptness) delayed the big reveal.
This blogging thing isn’t easy. It’s a lot of fun, but harder than it looks. To all the fabulous bloggers I’ve been inspired by for years … I bow down.
I hope you’ll give the Aperol Spritz a try.
As always, I appreciate your visit and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
Cheers from Snowberry!
