Hello and happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a good start to the new year so far. I am excited to share my first recipe of 2022!! I am shaking things up this week with a new cocktail. I created a sweet and refreshing Cranberry Orange Aperol Spritz. If you are an Aperol spritz lover, then this cocktail is especially for you! The combination of cranberries, oranges, Aperol liquor, Prosecco, and a splash of sparkling water is the perfect winter cocktail.
Cranberry Orange Aperol Spritz
2 ounces Aperol Liquor
1/4 cup frozen cranberries (you can use fresh cranberries)
1-2 orange wedges
1 small bottle of Prosecco or champagne
1 ounce sparkling water
Fill a large wine glass with ice. Add the cranberries and orange wedges. Next, add the Prosecco or champagne, whichever one you would like to use. Lastly, add sparkling water and stir well. Feel free to add an extra orange wedge and cranberries for garnish. Enjoy!
