  • 3 parts Prosecco (sparkling wine) – 90 ml
  • 2 parts Aperol – 60 ml

  • ice cubes
  • orange slices and orange peel


  1. Squeeze the orange peel inside the wine glass to release its essential oils. You can also gently rub the inside of the glass

Recipe Notes

The new recipe:

3 parts Prosecco, 3 parts Aperol, 1 part soda water


The sweeter version:

3 parts sparkling Moschato D'Asti, 2 parts Aperol, 1 part soda water



  • For an extra chilled drink, store the wine, the aperol, and the soda in the fridge a few hours before serving. This way the ice cubes will not melt very fast and dilute your drink.
  • Add the ice cubes at the beginning or at the end? It actually doesn’t make a dramatic difference, but if you want to preserve most of the bubbles I find it is best to add the ice cubes at the end.
  • Serve this refreshing drink with nuts, pop corn or these crunchy roasted chickpeas
