Aperita Margarita Cocktail

Aperita Margarita Cocktail

Who doesn’t love a Venetian Aperol Spritz? Combine it with a margarita and you have an Aperita, my new favorite cocktails.

Serves one.


1 ½ ounces of blanco tequila
1 ounce Aperol
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
½ ounce freshly squeezed orange juice
¼ ounce agave nectar
¾ ounce water
Tajin to rim the glass
Orange twist to garnish



Place first six ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake.

Strain into a Tajin-rimmed rocks glass with plenty of fresh ice. Garnish with an orange twist.
