Just like the rest of us, Reese Witherspoon is getting into the fall spirit. She recently posted an Instagram pic of her DIY decorated porch adorned with pumpkins, mums and cornstalks, proclaimed her love for everything pumpkin in the form of a meme and even more recently posted a video where she made made a fall-centric Fizzy Apple Cider Cocktail, which looks totally delicious. Plus, it only requires four ingredients—as if we needed another reason to make this festive sipper! We have a feeling this is going to become our new favorite cocktail for fall. Here's how she made it.

Reese Witherspoon's Fizzy Apple Cider Cocktail

This four-ingredient fizzy fall cocktail starts off with apple cider, then gets topped with Aperol—an Italian bitter apéritif that's the key ingredient in the summertime favorite Aperol Spritz—club soda and bubbly Prosecco. You can also add an optional stick of cinnamon and apple slice for for decoration. And, in true Reese fashion, a little dancing is always needed to add an extra touch. While Reese doesn't give the exact measurements, here's what we came up with from eye-balling it.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1.5 oz. Aperol
  • 1/4 cup of club soda
  • 1/4 cup of Prosecco
  • Optional: Cinnamon stick & apple slice for garnishes

Directions:

Fill your cocktail glass halfway with ice, then add your apple cider, Aperol, club soda and Prosecco. Give it a quick stir, top with the optional garnishes, do a little dance and enjoy!
