Watermelon Aperol Spritz

Watermelon Aperol Spritz

  • Author: Molly
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 2 cups watermelon juice (See NOTE)
  • 1 (750-mL) bottle of aperol
  • 1 (750-mL) bottle of prosecco
  • 3 cups seltzer water
  • Ice, for serving
  • Orange slices, for serving
  • Watermelon wedges, for serving


  1. For best results, ensure all your ingredients are chilled prior to mixing.
  2. To a large pitcher, add the watermelon juice, aperol, prosecco, and seltzer. Stir gently to combine.
  3. Fill serving glasses with ice and pour the watermelon mixture over top. Garnish each glass with a slice of orange and a watermelon wedge. Serve immediately.


  • If you cannot find pre-made watermelon juice, add approximately 3 cups of diced fresh watermelon to a blender and puree until completely smooth. If desired, you can press the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer to remove any pulp.
  • To make individual servings of this, simply add 2 oz of watermelon juice, 3 oz of aperol, and 3 oz of prosecco to each glass filled with ice. Top off with a splash or two of seltzer, garnish, and serve!
