How to Make Aperol Margaritas
Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!
- Make the juice ice cubes.
- Add all ingredients to a blender.
- Blend, pour, and serve.
Bright orange in color and bittersweet, Aperol is an Italian apéritif that has notes of rhubarb and orange.
I love using a Vitamix for frozen cocktails, but any high-powered blender will work.
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.
