Aperol Spitz: nothing short of a summer sensation.
Step forward Aperol Spritz ice-pops – perfect for the weekend.
Better still, they’re actually ridiculously straight-forward to make. We spotted this particular recipe over on GoodHousekeeping.co.uk:
- 4 tbsp caster sugar
- 375 ml water
- Juice of 1 orange (making 100ml/3½fl oz)
- 75 ml of Aperol
- 150 ml prosecco
- In a small pan, gently heat the caster sugar with the water to dissolve the sugar.
- Divide liquid between moulds, add a slice of orange to each, poke in lolly sticks and freeze until solid.
