Rosé-Aperol Spritz with Fresh Mint

Rosé-Aperol Spritz with Fresh Mint is a refreshing cocktail perfect for happy hour! 

Can we chat about phone apps?

What are your go-to’s besides social media?

For me, the most used is probably NOTES. I bet I’ve written a novel based on my scroll history. I also use Canva, Podcast, Amazon, and Nanit at least every other hour. Basically I’m either editing photos, ordering stuff from Amazon, or checking in on Charlie all while listening to a Podcast. 

Speaking of podcasts, what are some of your favorites right now? I love my friend Liz’s podcast: Irie Lemon Podcast. It’s about business, life, etc. Also, still loving Joe Rogan. Always.

I think it’s fascinating that people think you need to agree with either the right or the left when it comes to educating ourselves about world issues. Joe Rogan’s interviews have basically proven that you can have a moderate approach when it comes to big topics. You just need to talk them out! Right? Right. 

Anyway, if we are going to chat about big issues then this mama is going to need a cocktail! You can’t beat a crisp, cold rosé or aperol spritz during the summer months. BUT! What if we combined them to make one delicious, festive drink: Enter, Rosé-Aperol Spritz with Fresh Mint.

Simply mix a few ingredients together like passion fruit, lime juice, aperol, and rose. I noted in the ingredients list that passion fruit juice typically comes in a carton versus a glass jar in the juice section. If you can’t find passion fruit I would try grapefruit juice or something with a tart flavor. 

Once you’ve got everything mixed together, fill a few glasses with ice, and pour! Cheers, friends!
