  • Champagne Mid-range Prosecco
  • Aperol
  • Blood Orange Sparkling Water
  • Fresh Blood Orange


  1. Cut up the fresh blood orange in slices and place them in the glass. Softer blood oranges would work well because it will release more juices.

  2. Fill up your wine glass with ice. I know, ice in wine? Pass. However, this is a spritzer so it's best served really chilled

  3. Pour in 3 parts of your Prosecco. If you hate measuring, I usually just fill the glass a little over half way

  4. Now you add the Aperol. You are supposed to add 2 parts of Aperol. I just add enough until its fragrant, and has turned everything orange

  5. Top off your glass with the sparkling water. Specifically 1 part.
