This Aperol Americano Cocktail is a great and simple drink. This is a a slight twist on the classic and you will want more than one.  It tastes great and the low alcohol content makes it a great afternoon sipper!


  • 1 ½ Ounce Aperol
  • 1 ½ Ounce Sweet Vermouth
  • Club Soda, to top
  • Orange Peel or round to garnish


  1. Add Aperol and Sweet Vermouth into a highball glass filled with ice
  2. Top with Club Soda
  3. Garnish with orange and serve


  • Choose a nice sweet vermouth for this drink. The flavor depends on it.
  • A highball glass is recommended, but this will work in any glass as long as you have enough club soda to fill the glass
  • For the Orange garnish, either use a twist or just the orange peel.
  • Lemon can be used in substitution for the orange.
