Daytime Cocktails: Aperol Spritz & Pimm’s Cups

Basic or not, orange-colored day-drinking cocktails are a delicious option, and Joe Wang ’01 will show you two that you can enjoy without sleeping through the V-Rade

The day-glo orange Aperol Spritz will require equal parts Aperol and prosecco, some plain soda water, and an orange slice, mixed in a wine glass over ice. 

A more muted-color Pimm’s Cup will require some Pimm’s No. 1 (you can read that as Pimm’s ’01, nobody will judge), lemon soda, a slice of cucumber, and a sprig of mint, in a Collins glass mixed over ice.  He likes throwing in a bit of other fruit (strawberry, lemon, lime, orange) but that’s not strictly necessary.

Ingredients & Supplies you’ll need:

Aperol Spritz:

  • Aperol
  • Prosecco or other dry sparkling wine
  • Soda water
  • Slice of orange
  • Ice
  • Wine glass

Pimm’s Cup:

  • Pimm’s No. 1
  • Lemon Soda (San Pellegrino Limonata on the dry side, Sprite or 7-Up on the more sweet side; ginger ale also acceptable)
  • Slice of cucumber
  • Sprig of mint
  • Optional: sliced strawberry, orange, lemon, and/or lime
  • Ice
  • Collins glass

PB Royale

…oh wait, this isn’t the 5th reunion?  Nevermind.
