Sweet, fruity, and floral, Elderflower liqueur is an ideal compliment to the bittersweet citrus and herb flavor of Aperol, and when the two are mixed together with crisp and bubbly Prosecco the result is dangerously refreshing! Bright, light, summery, and super simple to make, the Elderflower Aperol Spritz is sure to be your new go-to cocktail for brunch with friends.
This minty spritz is twist on the insanely popular Aperol Spritz. A low-alcohol cocktail means you can enjoy more than one and not overindulge. We love this classic aperitif for the holidays because of the bright, bold colors and distinctive flavor.
A sparkling wine-based cocktail traditionally served in the northern part of Italy during "apertif hour". Essential to the spritz is an Italian bitter orange liqueur such as Aperol, which is in the same family as Campari but a little less bitter and a little more refined. This Simple Aperol Spritz is fairly low in alcohol, luckily, because it goes down a little too easily! Cin cin!
The orange is unmistakable, a vibrant color that lights up your toasts and adds joy to the moment. Everything else is brought to the table by the inner lighthearted spirit of the Aperol Spritz: the spirit that makes people spontaneously come together and sparks nothing but good times.
We chose to use Bulldog Gin for the Asian Plum Spritzer because it's bright citrus and tropical fruit notes pair well with the slightly sweet flavors of the plum wine and prosecco. The yellow chartreuse and thyme add an unexpected herbaceous layer to this spring cocktail.
