Rosé Aperol Spritz? Meet the updated cocktail classics you’ll be drinking all summer

Not so long ago, bitter aperitifs such as Campari and Aperol were little more than dust gatherers at the back of your parents’ drinks cupboard. Fortunately, we realised a few years back that despite our shoddy summers, aperitivo hour should definitely be a thing in the UK and our obsession took off in style, with Negronis and Spritzes all over the shop.

Much as they’ve become summer booze staples, it’s always fun to experiment, so we went in search of a few simple twists on the summery, sunshine-y classics we know and love.

Scroll through our gallery below for your new favourites, such as the Rosé Aperol Spritz, the Aperoni, the Scotch-jito, a pimped-up Daiquiri and a frankly fabulous sorbet update for your go-to glass of prosecco.
