Halloween Cocktail - Aperol Spritz

You didn’t think I was going to leave you empty handed for Halloween right? I’ve been working very closely with Sourced Craft Cocktails on photographing all of their craft cocktails!

Sourced Craft Cocktails is new start-up in Austin that is bringing you the ultimate cocktail experience in the comfort of your home. Sourced brings you EVERYTHING you need to enjoy the same premium cocktails you can get at the best cocktail bars in the world.  The team will bring you the booze, the juice, the mixers, the glasses, the necessary barware, the beautiful ice, and the recipe so you can make world-class drinks for yourself and your guests.

I’m kicking off Halloween with their Aperol Spritz with a spooky twist! You can make this cocktail at home, or if you’re based in Austin, order the Aperol Spritz through Sourced Craft Cocktails!

The Aperol was launched in 1919 at the Padua International Fair. Made from bitter orange gentianrhubarb, and cinchona among other ingredients that are kept secret. The taste profile is similar to Campari, but milder and less bitter. At the 2010 and 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Aperol received double-gold medals—the highest available award.
