Strawberry Spritz

Aperol Spritz little sister

Elegant, delicious and most importantly easy to make, this Strawberry Spritz cocktail is everything you need to feel good after a long week.

We like to jokingly call this Aperol Spritz’s little sister ( fun fact: we are hardcore Aperol Spritz fans, we’re not gonna lie). But we feel nothing but love for this wonderful cocktail. It’s light, it’s sweet and it’s airy, what’s not to love.

This one sits close to our list of favorites because of how easy it is to make. Bonus points for being so versatile. The Strawberry Spritz with Prosecco is perfect with steak but works just as well with a fresh summer salad.

Don’t let its name full you into thinking this is some complicated cocktail. It’s really just an alternative to Aperol Spritz, and it’s just as easy to make. If you’re feeling extra lazy you can even replace the fresh mashed strawberries for a quality strawberry syrup.

Without further ado, let’s get ourselves some cocktails.

Strawberry Spritz Cocktail Ingredients

Strawberry Spritz Ingredients

Prosecco

Stay away from sweet Prosecco or this will taste more like a smoothie than a cocktail. Choose a dry bubbly wine.

Home made or store brought strawberry syrup

If you find yourself falling in love with this cocktail, you can always make a batch of strawberry syrup ahead ( by mashing strawbberies with some honey) and freeze it until you need it. If not, you can always use store brought syrup. Just go for something organic.

Sparkly water

If you’re feeling adventurous, skip this step all together. Just make sure you have no commitements tomorrow. And keep that aspirin close to your bedside.

Ice

Tastes best served ice cold.

Fresh strawberries *

Optionally, for when you feel extra fancy or want to impress your friends. You can drop a strawberry or two in the glass and enjoy fishing it out after it’s soaked nicely in prosecco.
