Per cocktail


  1. Add ice to a wine glass until it is nearly full. Pour in the Aperol (I usually eyeball this and pour until I’ve filled about one-third of the glass).
  2. Pour in an equal amount of Prosecco. Top your drink off with a splash of club soda and add a slice of orange. Enjoy!


Make it less bitter: Use less Aperol and more Prosecco.

Make it less boozy: Use more club soda, and less Aperol and Prosecco.

Recommended equipment: I really love the stemless wine glasses (affiliate link) shown in these photos. They are my everyday wine drinking glass, and I almost never break them.
