Aperol Spiked Iced Tea –
Beat the summer heat by spiking your iced tea! Find a pretty glass, add a shot of something interesting like Aperol, fill with your favorite iced tea, and top it with a slice of something citrusy. It’s an easy and refreshing drink. I like Aperol a big bunch. It is an Italian aperitif, with a strong bitter orange note. It has a lighter alcohol content as well. Aperol will certainly add some nice zip to your iced tea. Have fun with this idea and enliven your iced tea with other spirits you have on hand. I’d love to hear about what combinations you discover.
Here’s the recipe for this light and lively cocktail:
Aperol Spiked Iced Tea
- 2 ounces Aperol
- 6 – 8 ounces chilled black tea
- orange wheel slice
Mix the aperol and black tea, and pour into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with an orange wheel slice. If your spiked tea is a little too bitter for your taste, squeeze in a bit more fresh orange juice.
