Over on our Facebook wall, www.facebook.com/ourfeedingfrenzy, we started a conversation this morning about Pumpkin Ales. Sam Adams has one, Blue Moon has one, local brewery Four Peaks has one. What are your thoughts? Do you have a favorite?
But, then we came across this lovely looking libation from the folks at The Chew and we had to share it in time for Halloween Weekend. I mean, let's face it...some of you may be drinking hot toddies by the fire this Halloween weekend, but for many of us in the South and the West, our kids will still be incorporating shorts and tshirts into their costume choices. This Aperol Spritzer is orangy, sparkly and refreshing.
What's Aperol? Well, according to their website at www.aperolusa.com, Aperol is "an exotic infusion of sweet orange peel, hints of mandarin, orange and an array of herbs and spices. With its flirty orange color and bright, zesty flavor, Aperol is a perfect choice for fashion-forward, creative cocktails at any social occasion!"
Here's the recipe -- you just need Aperol (I know BevMo has it), prosecco or other sparkling wine and an orange for garnish.
