  • 3 parts prosecco (sparkling wine)
  • 2 parts Aperol (bitter orange liqueur)
  • 1 part club soda


Fill glass with ice. That chills the glass to help keep the drink cold just a bit longer.

Add prosecco and Aperol, stir. Top with splash of club soda and an orange slice.


Aperol is bright orange bitter orange liqueur. Ask your liquor department where to find it but usually with liqueurs.
