This spring-inspired sipper is sure to put a spritz in your step!
Creating unique and delicious cocktails is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen, but knowing which ingredients taste best when mixed and shaken together can be a challenge! I find the easiest way to get creative with cocktails is to try new variations with drinks you know you love!
I’ve always adored the refreshing flavor of an aperol spritz, so why not give it a seasonal twist? The traditional aperol spritz is made from aperol, prosecco and a splash of sparkling water. To give this new version a spring look and taste, I swapped prosecco for prosecco rosé, aperol or elderflower liqueur and sparkling water for an easy homemade strawberry syrup!
The result is a deliciously fruity adult beverage that would taste amazing alongside a spring brunch!
