Aperol Spritz 321 Recipe

I shared this drink several times in my stories recently, and every time I did we had lots of questions. So I figured you might need them answered as well.

How do you make a good Aperol Spritz?

I call this my beginner cocktail because once you know how to make it, you’ll never forget it. Plus the reason it’s called the Aperol Spritz 321 recipe is because of the ratios:

3 parts Prosecco

2 parts Aperol

1 part club soda or some other type of bubbly soda.

This ratio is the best, but as with any drink. It’s not the only way to make it. You can adjust as you need, but this makes sure every Aperol Spritz you make will taste great.

What can I use instead of Prosecco?

You can use champagnes, sparkling wines, or cava for that matter if you don’t have Prosecco. But the reason why Dry Prosecco is the best is that it’s sweeter than other options, which pairs incredibly well with Aperol.

Why you should start with Aperol Spritz when serving drinks

The reason we always say to start with this drink is because of its lower alcohol levels. Aperol Spritz has around 11% alcohol, which is low compared to other stirred cocktails.

How many calories are in an Aperol Spritz?

This cocktail is a much lighter option compared to others, and an Aperol Spritz has only 158 calories per drink.

Is Aperol Alcoholic?

Aperol is an Italian Bitter and makes a great ingredient for mixing cocktails. It’s considered a liqueur and has a low percentage (11%) of alcohol.

What if I don’t have Aperol?

Okay, this was my issue last week. Instead of using the actual Aperol, I used Lillet. But I did find a full list of options here (HERE) if you need it.
