What to drink this summer? Aperol Spritz Slush, a taste of summer sunshine!

What will your signature summer drink be? I love rosé wine and chilled crisp whites, but when the temperature soars and I'm sitting in the garden, I want something a little more refreshing. Aperol Spritz Slush takes a bit of preparation, but I think it is worth it!

Aperol Spritz Slush: a taste of summer sunshine!


  • 75ml Aperol liqueur
  • 400ml soda water
  • 125ml Prosecco
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 125ml no-added-sugar orange squash (65ml if using double concentrate)
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced, to decorate


  1. Mix all the ingredients (except for the sliced orange) together in a large jug. Pour into a shallow, freezer-proof, lidded container, then seal and freeze. After 30 minutes, scrape the frozen mixture with a fork to break up any large ice crystals, seal and refreeze, then repeat this 5 more times every 30 minutes. The granita should look like slush when it's ready.
  2. Spoon the granita into 4 glasses and decorate with the slices of orange — and cocktail umbrellas, if you have any!
