Strawberry St. Germaine and Aperol Spritz

Servings 1 Serving


  • Rim:
  • 1/3 cup freeze-dried strawberries, unsweetened (I buy them at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • Cocktail:
  • 8 fresh strawberries. cut into quarters
  • 2 ounces St. Germaine Elderflower Liqueur
  • 3 ounces Aperol
  • 3 ounces champagne or prosecco
  • splash of club soda
  • orange and fresh strawberry slices, for garnish


  • Rim:
  • Place the freeze dried strawberries in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to obtain a powder.
  • In a small bowl. combine the strawberry powder with the granulated sugar.
  • Cocktail:
  • Brush the corn syrup on the rim of your cocktail glass or in any area of your glass to create a design, if preferred. Immediately press the sticky area in the strawberry sugar. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Add the quartered strawberries to a glass or cocktail shaker. Add the St. Germaine and muddle into a jammy mixture. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes, for flavors to develop, if time allows.
  • Add ice to your prepared cocktail glass, pour the muddled strawberries over the ice and top with Aperol, bubbly of choice, then a splash of sparkling water. Give it a good stir and garnish with a slice of orange and some strawberries. Enjoy!
