A perfect summer drink or brunch cocktail. A twist on the classic aperol spritz recipe with pineapple.
I just got back from my trip to Palm Springs, California and while I was there I had the most amazing cocktail. It was a pineapple aperol spritz. As soon as it hit my lips I knew this was going to be my drink of choice for this summer. I took a mental note of the ingredients for when I returned home.
Two weeks later and I am bringing Palm Springs to brunch. Today I am teaming up with some of my favorite bloggers to share 5 easy brunch cocktails. Stick around to the end to see what they have created.
What is Aperol?
Aperol is an Apéritif which is a drink usually served before a meal. It is a liqueur from Italy by Campari made of gentian, rhubarb, and cinchona. Although it’s made of these ingredients when served with an orange it almost taste like a refreshing orange spritzer.
