Aperol Spritz with Schweppes

After a long, hot summer day in Kentucky – there’s nothing quite like unwinding with a refreshing cocktail. When it comes to mixing, Schweppes is my go-to for many reasons. It’s flavorful, refreshing, and has been trusted for over two centuries; in my book, that means they are doing something right.

JC’s note: The lemon-lime flavor is my favorite because it pairs well with so many cocktails. Pick it up on your next visit to the store, use it as a mixer, and thank me later.

Frequently Asked Questions

What soda water is necessary to make this cocktail?

While you can use the sparkling water of your choice, I most enjoy the Schweppes brand. I chose the lemon lime, as I knew it would pair well with the citrus notes of the Aperol.

Where can I purchase Aperol?

Aperol is readily available. You will be able to find it in a majority of liquor stores.

This recipe calls for prosecco? What’s the difference between prosecco and champagne?

Champagne is a sparkling wine from France; Prosecco is a sparkling wine from Italy. You’ll find champagne to be much more expensive, as it takes a longer to produce. They are often labeled as substitutes in mixed cocktails; due to price point, I’d recommend purchasing prosecco.

Ingredients/Shopping List:

  • Aperol: You’ll use 2 ounces in this recipe. Aperol is found in most liquor stores.
  • Schweppes: Chose the sparkling water of your choice, though I most recommend the lemon lime. You will use 2 ounces per cocktail.
  • Prosecco: You’ll need two ounces; I recommend using an economical prosecco, as it will be mixed.
  • Orange: for garnish — one is sufficient!

About Schweppes

Schweppes Tonic Water began in 1783 as the world’s original soft drink.  Customers referred to Schweppes as “Lightning In A Bottle” because it was the first bottle of its kind to retain carbonation. Schweppes received a warrant of appointment in 1836 from King William IV of England, which significantly contributed to the popularity of the growing brand. They went on to be the official drink of the 1851 Great Exhibition held at the Crystal Palace in London. The event made such an impact that the fountain is still featured on the logo today. For over 230 years, Schweppes has been committed to quality and excellence.
