    I notice that the pitcher-sized batch instructions (3 parts Aperol, 2 parts prosecco) uses a different ratio than the single serving recipe (4.5 oz Prosecco or other sparkling wine, 3 oz Aperol). Is this accurate? Just recently had my first Aperol Spritz and looking forward to making them at home with this recipe. Thanks for sharing it.

      Hi Brian, thanks for the comment. The pitcher instructions should be 3 parts prosecco and 2 parts Aperol. We’ll correct that. Thanks for pointing that out!

    I’m definitely going to try this one. Beautiful! We always have Prosecco on hand, and I recently ordered a cocktail in a restaurant with Aperol for the first time and loved it, which makes sense because i love rhubarb. πŸ™‚ Cheers!
