Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
  • I recommend using a large stemmed glass or an old fashion glass for this cocktail.
  • Ice is a must for this one. Be sure to fill the glass with ice before adding ingredients.
  • Substitute fresh orange for the lemon for a traditional Aperol spritz.
  • This cocktail is perfect for the holidays, a summer picnic, or an afternoon brunch.
  • To make simple syrup, simply place equal amounts of sugar and water in a small stovetop pan. Heat until the sugar dissolves. Cool completely and store in a mason jar, with a lid, in the refrigerator for 3-4 weeks.
