Refreshing Aperol Tonic (Without Prosecco)

4.50 from 10 votes
Aperol tonic is the new Aperol Spritz! This cocktail is lighter, less alcoholic and just as refreshing as a Spritz. It's also a great alternative if you do't have Prosecco.

  1. You can use classic Indian tonic waters or flavored tonic water (see post above). Fever-Tree's premium Indian tonic water is our top choice. It's rich in quinine, perfectly bitter and not too sweet. You can find it in most stores but note that it's a little pricier than other brands.
