Aperol is an Italian liquor that has most recently made a major comeback. Aperol’s main flavor is sweet grapefruit with aromas of rhubarb and orange, which makes it perfect to pair with other citrus and fruit. It seems like you can’t go anywhere without seeing an Aperol Spritz on a fun cocktail menu, so why not try Aperol Spritz Popsicles?
These Aperol Spritz Popsicles were a cinch to make with this inexpensive Koji Ice Popsicle Maker.
APEROL SPRITZ POPSICLES
makes 10 popsicles
3/4 cup Aperol
1/2 cup Prosecco
1/4 cup club soda
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp. orange zest
10 orange slices
First juice your oranges. In a bowl combine Aperol, Prosecco, club soda, orange juice and orange zest. Stir and let sit for a few minutes to release carbonation.
Add your orange slices to your popsicle mold and then pour the remaining ingredients into the mold. Put the cover on and insert popsicle sticks. Send to the freezer for at least 5-6 hours, but freezing overnight is always best. When frozen remove your popsicles. Add them to an existing Aperol Spritz or allow for them to thaw in your glass. Garnish with orange slices.
