Aperol & Grapefruit Soda

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of sipping an Aperol Spritz on a balmy afternoon, you know just how perfect the Italian aperitif is on a hot day. An even simpler version of that already simple cocktail, this low-ABV summer sipper swaps out the Prosecco and the seltzer for tart, semi-sweet grapefruit soda. It’s bittersweet, bubbly and downright chuggable.
