A Christmas cocktail

Thursday 21 December 2023

If you’re staying in this Christmas and looking for a simple and delicious drink to rustle up on the big day, try this winter take on an Aperol Spritz to bring the festive cheer!

Cranberry Aperol spritz


50ml cranberry juice

50ml Aperol 

100ml sparkling wine 

25ml soda water 


  • Fill a tall wine glass or gin copa with ice
  • Pour in the cranberry juice and Aperol, followed by the sparkling wine and soda water
  • Garnish with a slice of orange and a sprig of rosemary, or use a festive ice cube (see below) 
  • Enjoy! 

For a non-alcoholic version, there are a few good Aperol substitutes on the market such as San Bitter from San Pellegrino. And you can either replace the sparkling wine with a non-alcoholic version such as Nozeco (which is available from most supermarkets) or leave it out completely and use some extra soda water. 

To make your own festive ice cubes, put some cranberries and orange slices into a large ice cube tray, fill with cranberry juice and pop in the freezer for a few hours or overnight. 

Merry Christmas!
