It’s no surprise that Aperol Spritzes are one of the most popular cocktails during the spring and summer months. This low-ABV cocktail is a refreshing blend of Aperol – an Italian liqueur that’s a little sweet with a slightly bitter finish, Prosecco, and club soda or sparkling water topped with an orange slice. It’s simple yet delicious! But, let me show you how to level up your traditional Aperol Spritz and make it even more delicious.
I love this riff on the classic Aperol Spritz because it’s a bit sweeter with tropical-tasting notes and a refreshing bubbly finish. This is the perfect drink to enjoy with your friends because it’s still a low-abv cocktail, it’s easy to make (only 4 ingredients), and it’s a great summertime sipper!

Infusing liqueurs is a simple way to elevate any cocktail or mocktail. To make this Pineapple-infused Aperol Spritz, start by soaking 8-10 ounces of fresh, chopped-up pineapple with a 750 mL bottle of Aperol for at least 8 hours or overnight, then strain out solids. Store the infused Aperol in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. This infusion creates a slightly sweetened essence to the tart liqueur.
Once your Pineapple-infused Aperol is created, it’s time to create the Tropical Tangerine Aperol Spritz. Start by filling a wine glass with ice. Add the pineapple-infused Aperol, Prosecco, tangerine juice, and a splash of sparkling water. Use a bar spoon and stir to combine. If desired, garnish with a pineapple slice, pineapple frond, tangerine slice, and edible flowers. Enjoy!
