Aperol Orange Juice Cocktail
We’re huge fans of cocktails with orange juice, which is why we made this Aperol orange juice cocktail. The Aperol’s characteristic taste goes really well with freshly squeezed orange juice and the herby taste of ginger.
Add that to the fact that Aperol and Prosecco complement each other, and this cocktail is born!
Tips for Making an Aperol Orange Juice Cocktail
- This drink tastes best when served ice-cold.
- We recommend you use freshly squeezed orange juice. Boxed orange juice might be full of added sugars and does not taste as good as fresh juice.
- Garnish your Aperol cocktail with one or two slices of orange. This gives your drink a professional touch!
Aperol Orange Juice Ingredients
- Aperol; the bittersweet Italian aperitivo
- Prosecco. If you don’t have any Prosecco, it can be substituted by sparkling white wine.
- Freshly squeezed orange juice. We can’t stress enough that freshly squeezed orange juice tastes much better than boxed orange juice!
- Ginger. A small piece of a fresh ginger root adds a citrus and earthy flavor to your cocktail.
- Orange slices for garnish. Before squeezing the orange, cut off one or two thin slices of orange to decorate your glass.
- Ice cubes

How to Make an Aperol Orange Juice Cocktail
Are you thirsty yet? Then let’s swing into action!
Cut off around 2 centimeters (a little under one inch) of the ginger, then wash and peel it. Cut the piece in half to ensure it easily blends in the blender.
Grab your blender and add the freshly squeezed orange juice together with the ginger. Mix it until the piece of ginger has blent.
Using a fine-mesh sieve, pass the liquid into a ball glass filled with ice cubes. You can discard the solids.
Next, add the Aperol and top your drink off with Prosecco. As a finishing touch, decorate your cocktail with a few slices of orange. Saluti!
