I absolutely love fresh peaches in the summertime. For this recipe. I wanted to blend the sweet taste of a summer peach with a classic Aperol spritz (my favorite drink). But, when developing this recipe, I thought that making homemade peach puree could be a bit of a pain.. that’s when I found peach nectar! The peach nectar is thinner than puree, which makes for a well-blended cocktail. Follow the steps and tips below to make this unforgettable summer drink!

Ingredients

Ingredients for a peach aperol spritz.

  • Peach nectar – Bursting with the luscious flavor of ripe peaches, peach nectar forms the fruity foundation of this Peach Aperol Spritz. Its sweet, velvety essence adds a delightful depth to every sip, making it the star of this refreshing cocktail.
  • Aperol – With its citrusy flavor, Aperol brings a subtle bitterness to the mix, balancing out the sweetness of the peach nectar. Aperol is an Italian orange liquor and one of my favorite cocktail ingredients. 
  • Prosecco – Pop the cork and let the celebration begin with a splash of bubbly prosecco! This Italian sparkling wine adds a touch of bubbles to this spritz.
  • Soda water – Last but not least, soda water! Its gentle fizziness lightens the cocktail, creating a lively and invigorating mouthfeel that keeps you refreshed and coming back for another sip. With soda water’s crisp, clean finish, your Peach Aperol Spritz is perfect for sipping on a warm summer day.
  • Peach slices – I love to garnish this cocktail with fresh sliced peaches. You could also use frozen peaches – yum!

Substitutions and Additions

  • Add orange! You could add a splash of orange juice to make this drink more fruity!
  • Make a quick peach puree. Grab some frozen peaches and give them a quick blend. Make a fast and simple puree and use that instead of the nectar if you’d like!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Fill a glass with ice. Add 2 ounces of peach nectar to the glass.

Step 2: Next, add 1 ounce of Aperol to the glass.

Step 3: Stir gently. Pour in 3 ounces of prosecco.

Step 4: Top with a splash of soda water. Garnish with a peach slice or orange twist, if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tips and Notes

  • Chill everything –  For the best results, chill your ingredients beforehand. This ensures that your spritz stays cool and refreshing from the first sip to the last.
  • Play with ratios – Feel free to adjust the ratios of peach nectar, Aperol, prosecco, and soda water to suit your personal taste preferences. Some like it sweeter, while others prefer a bit more bitterness from the Aperol.

Serving Suggestions

  • Light appetizers – Serve your Peach Aperol Spritz alongside light appetizers such as bruschetta, crostini, or caprese skewers. These bite-sized treats will whet your guests’ appetites without overwhelming their palates.
  • Fresh salads – A crisp and refreshing salad makes an excellent accompaniment to the bright flavors of the spritz. For a perfect pairing, consider serving a simple arugula salad with fresh berries, goat cheese, and a balsamic vinaigrette.
  • Seafood platter – Take inspiration from coastal cuisine by pairing your spritz with a seafood platter featuring shrimp cocktail, oysters on the half shell, and smoked salmon. The delicate flavors of the seafood will complement the light and fruity notes of the cocktail.
