12 oz Aperol

1 cup frozen strawberries, optional

1 bottle (750ml) prosecco, or champagne

  3. Pour and enjoy: Pour into your favorite cocktail glasses and garnish with orange and grapefruit slices. Enjoy!


Prep Ahead: Freeze Aperol and orange juice for at least 4 hours and up to 2 days in a covered ice cube try.
