This festive season requires an accompaniment of delicious drinks, so we decided that it is best not to stop at mulled wine and also give you a selection of cold drinks to make. For cocktails and mocktails, look no further than this blog post!

Festive Aperol Spritz

Contrary to popular opinion, I am a firm believer that Aperol is for all seasons. An aperol spritz is found on ski slopes in the winter just as much as by the beach during summer months. However, if you’re looking for a fun spin on a classic cocktail- this is the recipe for you!

2 ounces Aperol

3 ounces Prosecco

1 ounce cranberry juice

1 orange wedge

1 orange zest twist

1 sprig of rosemary

Pour Aperol and cranberry juice into glass with two to three cubes of ice. Position orange wedge and rosemary sprig in glass. Top up with prosecco, before garnishing with orange twist! Go forth and enjoy Aperol, regardless of the season.
