Sparkling Aperol Gin Cocktail

Although this winter weather has everyone craving cozy bourbon and warm cocktails, I still like a refreshing light cocktail no matter the temperature outside. This fresh Aperol and gin delight is the perfect aperitif OR late night sipper. And anything bubbly is a plus in my book! Orange, lemon, herbal, sparkling…YUM! Give this gorgeous lady a try tonight!

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz Gin (I prefer Bombay Sapphire)
  • 1 oz Aperol
  • .5 oz fresh lemon juice (the juice of 1/2 lemon)
  • Appx 2-4 oz Blood Orange & Black Raspberry S. Pellegrino (enough to top the drink)
  • Ice

In a high ball or stemless wine glass filled with ice, combine Gin, Aperol, and lemon juice. Top with S. Pellegrino or sparkling water of choice. Stir to combine. Garnish with orange slice or candied orange. Enjoy!
