Orange Aperol Sunset

Orange Aperol Sunset

This Italian spin on the Mimosa gets its unique flavor from Aperol, a bright-orange Italian liqueur made from bitter oranges, rhubarb, and herbs. It's similar to Campari, but less bitter and more floral. In Italy, Aperol is served on the rocks mixed with Prosecco and a splash of club soda. In this recipe, the club soda has been replaced with a little fresh orange juice.

Serves 6

Ingredients

Ice cubes
6 tablespoons Aperol
6 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 750-ml bottle Prosecco
6 thin orange slices (for garnish)

Instructions
