Aperol Spritz

Aperol Spritz in Mallorca at Jumeirah Port Soller

Although I love a good margarita, one of my favorite summer cocktails is an Aperol Spritz.  It’s light, crisp and the perfect amount of sweet and bubbly!

Originally named Spritz Veneziano and popular during the Habsburg reign of Italy, it was everywhere in Spain.  I think that is because the Habsburg’s also ruled Spain!  (A little tidbit we learned on our tour of Madrid!) Either way, it’s a great summer cocktail for warm days.

The main photo above is my Aperol Spritz in Mallorca at Jumeirah Port Soller.  I’ll be sharing more about our time in Mallorca soon.  You can see my Packing List for Summer in Spain and also What I Wore in Spain this Summer where I’ve shared a bit of the details in the meantime.
