Autumn Aperol Cocktail Spritz is incredibly easy to make!




1. APEROL. This is the only thing that will work in this cocktail. The flavors are zesty orange, with a complex herbal infusion. Most markets sell this, near the liqueurs.

2. BLOOD ORANGES. The oranges with the deep dark red color inside.

3. APPLE CIDER. The surprising twist for this classic drink.

4. SODA WATER. Each drink will get just a splash, or go fancy with French champagne.

5. SLICED BLOOD ORANGE. You can skip this if you run out of the oranges, but it’s a really really pretty touch!




  1. Juice a few blood oranges.
  2. Cut one blood orange into slices for your garnish.



Fill a glass with about 1/2 cup of ice.

Pour in 3 oz. of Aperol

Add about 2 oz. of blood orange juice. (the more you use, the darker your cocktail will be.}

Pour in 2 oz apple cider.

Finish with a splash of soda water. Or go all out and splash in your favorite French champagne!
