What is Aperol?

Bright orange in color and bittersweet, Aperol is an Italian apéritif that has notes of rhubarb and orange.

What kind of blender should I use?

I love using a Vitamix for frozen cocktails, but any high-powered blender will work.

How can I add a little spice?

Dip the rim of each glass into Tajín seasoning for a little something extra!

Make Ahead Instructions

Make the ice cubes up to a month in advance. Store ice cubes in an airtight container in the freezer until ready to use.

Aperol Margarita Variations

Aperol: Instead of Aperol, use an equal amount of Campari. Campari is a little more bitter than Aperol, so you may taste a difference.

Juice: Freshly squeezed juice is best. Instead of orange or grapefruit juices, use your favorites. Bottled juice works in a pinch.

No Blender? No Problem!

Instead of blending all of the ingredients together, divide the juice ice cubes between 2 glasses. Mix the remaining ingredients together and pour half into each glass on top of the cubes. They won’t be frozen margaritas, but will still be delicious.
