Nothing says, "It's cocktail time!" in the summer quite like an Aperol spritz. Aperol, an Italian aperitif made with rhubarb, isn't just beautiful – it's a great way to elevate a variety of classic drinks. This spritz recipe gets a boozy update with the addition of vodka. 

Ingredients

    • 1 ounce vodka
    • 1 1/2 ounces Aperol
    • 3 - 4 ounces Prosecco
    • Splash of club soda or sparkling water (about 1 ounce per drink)
    • Splash of fresh grapefruit or orange juice, if desired
    • Grapefruit peel or orange slice or sprig of rosemary, for garnish

Preparation

In a cocktail shaker with ice, add Aperol and vodka. Shake vigorously. 

Add a few ice cubs to a large wine glass or rocks cocktail glass. Pour Aperol-vodka mixture into glass.

Top with prosecco and club soda. 

Add a garnish, if desired.
