Make the Best Aperol Spritz Using Grapefruit Spindrift
Tangy grapefruit is the perfect addition to last summer's most popular cocktail.
We are huge Spindrift fans here at EatingWell because their products are so simple and delicious. They're made with sparkling water and a hint of fruit juice, so there's no guessing what makes up the "natural flavors" in there. Their grapefruit flavor is a favorite in particular: It's made with grapefruit, orange and lemon juice with a hint of hibiscus. Yum!
And what better way is there to use a 30-pack of Spindrift from Costco than by making gorgeous summer cocktails? Below, you will find an extra-fizzy, sweetart Aperol Spritz that is sure to become your new favorite sip of the summer. Cheers!

Nutrition Information for the Grapefruit Aperol Spritz
Aperol recommends equal parts of each, but some people go with a 3-2-1 ratio of Prosecco, Aperol and seltzer. We personally prefer equal parts Prosecco and Aperol (2 ounces each) and one ounce of Spindrift Grapefruit, which comes in at 200 calories per drink. This is a pretty strong drink, so just make sure you enjoy in moderation!
