Ah the Aperol spritz — she’s cute and she knows it, even if her 15 minutes of internet fame are over. Maybe you remember the summer of 2019? Ahhh, the good old days (or at least, that pre-pandemic-kind-of-good). Who could forget seeing all the LA it-girls sipping these in their sundresses, or the bulbous orange glasses of this spritzer looming large on instagram feeds, or the hashtag #spritzlife? Not us, clearly.
As summer nears and our longing for la dolce vita comes on strong, we got to thinking, what if we made this Italian sweetheart of a drink with SPIKE instead of alcohol?
Here goes nothing.
We found this nonalcoholic sparkling wine here. Also a tip: get the ingredients nice and chilled before you add them.
- 4 cups lemon-lime soda (sub more club soda and less lemon-lime soda if you’d like it to be a little less sweet!)
- 1 cup club soda
- 3 tbsp lime juice
- .25 cup grenadine
- Fresh ginger, grated and muddled
- 1-2 SPIKE Delta-8 packets, depending on your desired strength.
Instructions: Combine all the ingredients in a pitcher and stir. Pour into a tall glass with ice. Garnish with lime rounds or maraschino cherries. Sip while tap dancing.
