Recipes to pair with your Aperol Sprtiz Mocktail!

I’m not a fan of alcohol, I just don’t like the feeling I get when I drink it, which hasn’t been for a really long time, but drinking Aperol Spritz takes me back to the days Anthony and I were dating and getting to know each other. We’d meet at some of Melbourne’s best little hidden bars during the warmer weather months which is the perfect time of year to enjoy an Aperol Spritz.

I wanted to re-create this in a simple non-alcoholic version. With the rise of 0% alcohol beverages, it’s quite easy to make mocktails these days!

  • Champagne – or sparkling wine will work here. Hey, if you want to enjoy some alcohol, use the real thing, but if you want to make this mocktail, you’re looking for a 0% version. I found mine in the soda isle of my local supermarket. But you can find them in liquor stores too.
  • Italian Spritz – again, you could use Aperol, but I used the Lyre’s brand Italian Spritz. They sell it in Woolworths stores in Australia. But I’ve heard there’s a brand called Cronito in the US that will work.
  • Soda water – or lemonade if you like your mocktail on the sweeter side.
  • Orange – thinly sliced. You want this to also be alcohol free haha. Kidding!

How to make Aperol Spritz Mockatil!

  • Slice up your orange slices. You want nice thin slices. Use a sharp knife to do this easily.
  • Add to a glass with your ice. I used stemless wine glasses. I think the stem is an utter waste of cupboard space and the stemless ones look way cleaner. I’m not judging them; I’m just saying they look bad haha.
  • Add you champagne, soda water and then top with about 25ml of Italian spritz. Then serve with a striped straw!

Tips and Tricks For Recipe Success!

  • Use quality ingredients!
  • Adjust the sweetness. The Italian spritz has a slightly bitter taste so lemonade might help sweeten things up.
  • If you’re making this in a large batch, use a cocktail shaker!
  • Garnishes! I like using little cocktail umbrellas, but some mint contrasts nicely with the orange hue of the drink!
