Total Time:
15 mins


  • 2 cup Aperol (or other bitter orange-color aperitivo, such as Campari or Cappelletti), chilled

  • 1 cup orange juice or blood orange juice, chilled

  • 1 1-liter bottle (or three 11.2 oz. cans) Italian blood orange soda, chilled

  • Ice

  • 1 750-ml bottle sparkling wine, such as Prosecco or cava, chilled

  • Blood orange slices


  1. In a pitcher combine Aperol and orange juice. Gently add blood orange soda, holding the mouth of the bottle or can close to the surface of the Aperol mixture so as not to lose effervescence. Stir gently to combine. Chill until ready to serve.

  2. To serve, fill glasses with ice. Fill three-quarters of the way with Aperol mixture. Top with sparkling wine. Stir briefly to combine. Add a slice of orange to each drink. Serves 12.
