Last summer I discovered a new summer beverage I could not get enough of… the Aperol Spritz. Erin Hawley is with us today sharing an amazing cocktail variation based on this Italian favorite.

A note from Erin…

Aperol Spritz are an Italian afternoon tradition. The light, fizzy cocktail is a perfect pre-dinner sipper. This variation adds a fresh floral flavor with cucumber and rose, which is a perfect compliment to the botanicals in Aperol.
