[Sassy_Social_Share style=""]

Aperitivo hour is calling – so why not make your favourite aperitif at home? With the right cocktail essentials, you could be sipping on Aperol Spritz with friends without leaving the house.

Whether you’re hosting a dinner party, chilling in the garden or simply want a fresh tasting Spritz after a busy day, you should make sure your home bar is well-stocked with our essential Aperol Spritz cocktail ingredients.

From must-have tools and mixers to the perfect garnishes, we have the ultimate list of home bartender essentials to help you make the perfect Aperol Spritz at home. Read on to find out how to fill your drinks trolley…

Bar tool essentials for the perfect Aperol Spritz 

It’s easy tomake a delicious Aperol Spritz at home. You just need the right ingredients and tools to pour the perfect glass in only three minutes!

  • Jigger – this metal measuring cup is the best way to get your Aperol Spritz measurements right. For the perfect Aperol Spritz recipe, you’ll want three parts prosecco (75ml), two parts Aperol (50ml) and a dash of soda (25ml).
  • Bar spoon – this long metal spoon with its spiral handle makes a great tool for stirring your cocktail.
  • Ice bucket – want to make your ice last longer? Add an ice bucket and tongs to your home bartender set-up so your guests never have to wait. It’s also a great way to keep your prosecco chilled.
  • Large wine glasses – cocktails always taste their best when they are enjoyed out of the correct glass. So what glass should an Aperol Spritz be served in? The perfect glass for an Aperol Spritz is a large wine glass.  Ideally a large white wine glass should be used but if you don’t have white wine glasses or need something sturdier that’s okay! 

If you really want to step up your Aperol Spritz glassware game, try serving it in our very own branded Aperol Spritz cocktail glasses.

Don’t worry if you don’t have the full bar setup. One of the best things about an Aperol Spritz is that you can make it with just the basics – a glass, some ice and the three key Aperol Spritz ingredients. Give it a quick stir with a spoon or stirrer and you’ll be good to go! Don’t forget to add an orange wedge before taking that first sip, the perfect garnish for an Aperol Spritz.

How to stock your home bar

With your bartending tools ready to go, all that’s left to do is make sure you have the essential ingredients. Here are some of the main things you’ll need for making an Aperol Spritz:

Top up your bottles

There are some essential Aperol Spritz cocktail ingredients you need to ensure you achieve the winning combination.

  • Prosecco – the perfect Aperol Spritz mixer. A freshly opened bottle will always achieve the best flavour and the right amount of bubbles.
  • Aperol – of course, Aperol Spritz can’t be made without Aperol! You can find our iconic orange bottle in most liquor retailers across the Country.
  • Soda – a dash of soda water will add a little extra fizz to your Spritz. If you don’t have club soda, sparkling water is the next best thing.

Ice at the ready

Ice is an essential ingredient for many cocktails, but especially for Aperol Spritz. You should fill your large wine glass with plenty of ice before pouring your Aperol Spritz, to make sure it’s chilled and refreshing.

Garnishes

Want to add a little pizzazz to your glass and wondering what fruit goes in an Aperol Spritz? To match the vibrant hue and zesty flavour of Aperol, oranges are the only acceptable Aperol Spritz garnish here. Simply drop an orange wedge into the glass to infuse all of the flavours.
