A Simple + Summery Aperol Spritz

A Simple + Summery Aperol Spritz

It’s the time of year when a refreshing beverage sounds just right. To conclude our week of camp-inspired recipes, we asked Schoolhouse friend, Alex, to share her tips for making a simple + summery Aperol spritz. Scroll below for an easy, elevated refresher perfect for outdoor dining, camping, or an at-home happy hour.


Summery Aperol Spritz



  • Aperol

  • Sparkling wine (we used Swick's Long Weekend)

  • A splash of sparkling water

  • Lemon slice (traditionally it's made with an orange slice, but I like the acid of a lemon better because it cuts down the sweetness)


Pouring sparkling water for aperol spritz in wine glasses



  1. To make, fill a large wine glass to the top with ice. 

  2. Add 2 oz. Aperol and 2 oz. sparkling wine (we used a 1 to 1 ratio, but you can customize it to your taste)

  3. Top with a splash of soda water and a citrus slice. Enjoy!
