Aperol and Soda

Aperol and Soda

Looking for a great way to make a mixed drink that requires almost no work and tastes great, then I introduce you to Aperol! Aperol is an Italian liquor made with Rhubarb and it is slightly sweet and slightly bitter and it goes so well in so many drinks or on its own.

A traditional Aperol spritzer is made with Aperol and Prosecco but for this drink we are using soda water and a little simple syrup to make a super easy cocktail with items most people have (or can make) and it tastes delicious. You can use tonic or bubbly water that is flavored or whatever you have on hand. That’s why I love this liquor because it is so versatile!

Hope you give it a try!
