With Labor Day coming up, I'm reminded that there are only a few fleeting more weeks of summer going on. I think a colorful Aperol Spritz is just what you need to sip on and relax this weekend to celebrate the change of seasons.

What is an Aperol Spritz

So, have you heard about this trendy Italian spritz yet? Until recently, (and surprisingly) it was not really on my radar. Then recipes started filling my feeds. So, I did what any curious cocktail loving woman does....

Yep, I Googled. I admit it, we all do it, and I'm so glad I did. Mostly because I can't accept there may be a delicious cocktail I have not tried. A Spritz is an Italian wine-based cocktail, commonly served as an aperitif in Northeast Italy.

Today that oversight ends. I'm sharing a delicious spin on the Aperol Spritz that includes Spindrift sparkling water. The orange mango flavor pairs perfectly with the orange rhubarb Italian liqueur.

An Aperol Spritz Is Just What You Need To Sip On And Relax This Weekend

One of the things I have come to love about the cocktail is that it's not supersaturated with alcohol. So, I can sip generously, and I do not have to feel guilty for enjoying a second glass.

Simple and delicious, you really must give this classic cocktail a try! Go ahead, call your girlfriends and schedule some time to relax and catch up. Make this your signature cocktail of the evening, and you'll be so glad you did!
