Aperol Spritz Recipe

Aperol Spritz Recipe

I knew nothing about the Aperol Spritz cocktail. In fact, two months ago I didn't even know such a thing existed ... But, since my husband and I decided to go out into the world more often and the first serious outing was in Venice, I said I'd try some more sophisticated stuff ... This Aperol Spritz cocktail is a classic in Italy, it can be seen anywhere in cafes and restaurants and it caught my attention at once.

There, they would serve it with half a slice of lemon in it and with a green olive. After studying the recipe on the internet, I noticed that it's a bit wrong, and below I will show you the classic recipe.

When we returned home, the first thing we did was to make good supplies of Prosecco and Aperol (it takes longer to consume, so you can also get a small bottle). Now, in our house, Aperol Spritz is in high demand. It's simple, very beautiful, with an interesting taste and aroma. You can adjust the quantities of the 3 basic ingredients to taste.

I haven't tried to replace the Aperol with Campari so far, but I understand it is possible and this is yet another version.


90 ml
60 ml
Sparkling water
30 ml
1 piece
or lemon
Ice cubes
5 pieces

Step by step


Prepare all the ingredients for the cocktail and, of course, a white wine glass.

Aperol and Prosecco can be found in almost any store. However, in case of emergency, Prosecco can be replaced with any sparkling white wine you like.


Put ice in a glass and shake it to cool.


Add 90 ml of Prosecco.


Then 60ml of Aperol.


Finally pour 30ml of mineral water.


Add half a slice of orange or lemon.


Squeeze another tablespoon of orange juice into the cocktail. Rub an orange peel along the rim of the glass.

These are small details that I often skip - I forget to shake the ice and I don't moist the rim with orange slice - but that's the classic recipe.


Stir carefully the mixture in the glass with a teaspoon.


Serve with great pleasure and relax :)
