FUN-Festive-FRESH-Fizz

October 11, 2016

One of the best parts about our mini Disney vacay was experiencing a deliciously fresh and new drink!!  Kat and I decided to hang at Il Mulino’s bar and boy was it a greatttt idea!

I decided to order one of their speciality drinks to go ahead and try something fun and new. Let me tell ya, it was well worth it!  I ordered what they called an Aperol Spritz.  It sounded super light and refreshing, and the main ingredient was Prosecco so how could I resist?!

Since Kat and I loveddd it so much, we decided it would be festive to recreate the drink for Fall (especially because they’re orange in color hehe)  They literally take 1 minute to make and were just as delicious as we remembered so we def recommend them!

Recipe:

1 1/2 ounces Aperol

3 ounces {or more depending on taste} Prosecco or sparkling wine, chilled

Sparkling mineral water or club soda, chilled

1 lemon or orange slice or twist

Fill the glasses with the Proseco {we used larger glasses so we filled them about halfway}, then add the Aperol and a splash of club soda. Garnish with the orange and you’re good to go!

This makes a fairly large drink, but because it is so light and not sweet, it’s easy to drink haha.

As for the Prosecco, you can use any brand, but the bar specifically used Cupcake.  The Aperol is the most expensive ingredient, but you only use a little anyway so you definitely can get several drinks out of the bottle!

If you’re looking for a fun, fresh, and easy Fall drink recipe- this is it!  Reminder it’s not super sweet but the Prosecco gives it just the perfect amount sugar!
