Ingredients

For the Blackberry Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup blackberries

For the Blackberry Aperol Spritz

  • 3 parts Prosecco
  • 2 parts Aperol
  • 1 part blackberry simple syrup
  • 1 part club soda
  • Ice cubes, for serving

Instructions

For the Blackberry Simple Syrup

  • In a small saucepan, bring the water, sugar, and blackberries to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes until the berries burst and the mixture thickens slightly, and you reach your desired consistency. 
  • Strain the contents into a glass jar through a very fine mesh strainer while gently pressing the fruit to extract as much of that delicious juice as possible. Discard the solids.

For the Blackberry Aperol Spritz

  • In a rocks glass or wine glass add the Prosecco, followed by the Aperol, blackberry simple syrup, club soda, and finish by adding a few ice cubes. Garnish with fresh blackberries. 

Notes

Your "parts" can easily be measured in ounces, or eyeball based on size of your glass.
