Winter Citrus Spritzer recipe

Mix oranges, Aperol, and champagne for a bright, citrus cocktail to ring in New Year's Eve. (Recipe Courtesy: Adrianna Adarme of the Fresh Tastes Blog)



  • 4 cara cara oranges (other oranges like satsumas, blood oranges or naval will work great, too), halved
  • Ice, for glass
  • 8 ounces Aperol
  • 12 ounces Cava or Champagne


  1. Using a vegetable peeler, remove slices of the peel; we’ll use this for garnish. Squeeze the oranges and run the juice through a sieve and discard the pulp. (Of course, if you like pulp, then skip this step!)
  2. Add ice to each glass. Divide the orange juice amongst the four glasses; pour two ounces of Aperol in each glass. And then top each drink with Cava or Champagne, about 3 ounces per glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
