Have you tried an Aperol Spritz? They are such a good, refreshing summer drink and remind me of being in Italy. While, I won't be indulging in any this summer due to pregnancy, we decided we still needed to share a version with you here on the blog. This is a Frozen Aperol Spritz recipe. It's an Aperol Spritz in blended form, so it brings the drink to another level of cooling refreshingness. Like the frose did to the rose.
This Frozen Aperol Spritz cocktail is super-easy to make. No shaking required. Just some simple measuring, turn on that blender, pour, and enjoy.
If you haven't had Aperol before, it is a bit bitter. Italians love their bitter liquors like Aperol and Campari (which goes into a negroni). Aperol is much less bitter than Campari, and has a bit of an orange flavor to it. It also has a bit of an orange-red color, making for a vibrant cocktail!
I especially wanted to share the Frozen Aperol Spritz recipe today because it is the FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of us getting married in Florence, Italy! It's hard to believe it was five years ago. It feels like ages! In a good way. Our wedding day was the best day of my life, and I love thinking back on it and remembering it. And so it seemed fitting to share this recipe today.
