Classic Aperol Spritz

We’re going to Italy this summer, so I’m celebrating with this classic Aperol spritz recipe! Aperol spritzes are ultra refreshing, not-too-sweet bubbly cocktails.

A proper Aperol spritz tastes like summertime in Italy and looks like a golden orange sunset. I’ll gladly sip one on our front porch now, overlooking our overgrown front yard, and later, with a view of the Italian Riviera.

I, for one, find the Aperol spritz to be entirely delightful. Both articles are written with the assumption that you have tried an Aperol spritz, but what if you haven’t? I vote that we all make some this weekend and decide for ourselves.

Aperol Spritz Ingredients

These cocktails require four basic ingredients, plus ice. 

1) Aperol

Only Aperol will do here. Aperol is a bright orange apéritif. The brand describes the flavors as, “zesty orange with complex herbal scents harmonized with a touch of vanilla.” Look for Aperol near the liqueurs or amaros at the liquor store.

2) Prosecco

Prosecco is an inexpensive Italian sparkling wine similar to Spanish Cava or French Champagne. I recommend choosing a dry (brut) Prosecco so you drink doesn’t turn out too syrupy or sweet. Good choices range from 12 to 18 dollars.

3) Club soda

For some fizzy dilution. Any unflavored sparkling water will work. I keep cans of sparkling water in my pantry for this purpose.

4) Slice of fresh orange

You can skip this if you don’t have it, but an orange slice is the classic garnish for an Aperol spritz.

How to Make an Aperol Spritz

Aperol spritz cocktails are unbelievably easy to make. No cocktail shaker or fancy equipment required!

You’ll simply fill a wine glass with ice, then add Aperol, Prosecco, club soda and a slice of orange.

How to Adjust Your Aperol Spritz

The generally accepted ratio is equal parts Aperol and Prosecco plus a splash of club soda. However, you can play around with the ratio until your Aperol spritz tastes exactly the way you like it. I like mine with a little more Prosecco than Aperol.

Make it less bitter

Aperol’s bitter notes can take some getting used to, so you can reduce the bitterness by using less Aperol and more Prosecco.

Make it less boozy

As written, your Aperol spritz is around 11 percent alcohol content by volume (Aperol is 11% ABV and Prosecco is 12%). To make it even lower in alcohol content, use proportionally more club soda and less Aperol and Prosecco.

What to Serve with Your Aperol Spritz

The aperol spritz is commonly served as an apéritif. Apéritifs are designed to be served before a meal to stimulate the appetite. They’re typically lightly alcoholic and more dry than sweet.

Serve your Aperol spritzes with Italian or general Mediterranean-flavored appetizers. Keep in mind that Aperol is on the bitter side. Salty, creamy/fatty and sweet foods take the edge off bitter flavors.

Apple Crisp

The Best Apple Crisp Recipe

Could there be a better treat this time of year? Especially this time of year with the abundance of fresh apples in season. Plus, I love that this easy apple crisp doesn’t take as much work as an apple pie, but it has similarly delicious flavors.

This is one of the most cozy soup recipes with rich homestyle flavor. It totally reminds me of growing up and being home. There’s just so much goodness in one bowl of this hearty soup.

This homemade apple crisp is packed with fresh, juicy apples that are perfectly sweetened and baked until perfectly tender. And don’t even get me started on that crumb topping! It’s crispy, golden brown, buttery perfection.

Trust me, this apple crisp will be the highlight of any meal. I mean if I had it my way this would be the main meal :).

  • Old fashioned rolled oats
  • Light brown sugar
  • Baking powder

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp – This is hands down the best Apple Crisp I’ve had! Trust me, this apple crisp will be the highlight of any meal! I mean if I had it my way this would be the main meal :).

How to Make Apple Crisp

  • Adjust oven rack and preheat oven. Butter baking dish.
  • In a mixing bowl whisk together 1/2 cup flour, oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, baking powder, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp salt.
  • Rub butter into dry mixture with fingertips until it comes together into small crumbles. Refrigerate.
  • In a bowl whisk together melted butter and flour until well blended, then mix in water, lemon juice and vanilla. Stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and pinch of salt.
  • Toss apples with butter mixture in a bowl then pour into prepared baking dish.
  • Sprinkle with crumble apple crisp topping.
  • Bake in preheated oven until top is golden brown and apples are tender.
  • Let cool slightly before serving.

What Are the Best Apples for Apple Crisp?

I prefer using a sturdy cooking apple that’s slightly tart, like Granny Smiths. Other apples would work, like braeburn or golden delicious, but sugar amounts and bake times might need to be adjusted.

Your apples should also be room temperature (this ensures that they bake evenly in the oven).

What Should I Serve on Top?

The best way to serve this always with vanilla ice cream. Then for an added bonus if you have time make some homemade salted caramel sauce.

Tips for the Best Apple Crisp

  • Be sure to slice your apples thinly so they become fully tender. No one wants a crunchy apple in their apple crisp.
  • Stick with granny smith apples for consistent results.
  • If you only have salted butter on hand, reduce the salt in the topping to 1/8 tsp and omit the salt in the filling.
  • Serve this homemade apple crisp freshly baked and warm. It will be okay for a couple of days, but the topping does start to soften up so I like it best fresh.

Crisps and crumbles are one of my favorite desserts because I love fruit and I’m head over heels crazy for a good sweet, crisp topping.

Plus, I love that they are faster than pies and you don’t have to wait 2 hours for pie crust to chill, then 2 hours for the pie to cool.

This is what fall weekend are all about! Walks through the autumn trees where you’re all bundled up cozy, warm apple cider and hot cocoa, pumpkin patch shopping and carving, and this easy apple crisp. It’s a must!
