Who wouldn't want to combine apples and Aperol to make a spiced, crisp cocktail of perfection?

Only five ingredients for a delicious and aesthetic fall cocktail? Count me in.
2. Aperol Pear Cider Spritz
Pears are another classic autumn fruit that make for fresh tasting drinks. For this cocktail, you will not be using club soda or prosecco, but instead will have to pick up some apple juice and hard pear cider to pair with your Aperol. You can also garnish with a pear slice, cinnamon and rosemary sprigs for decoration.
3. Pomegranate Aperol Spritz
If you want to steer clear of ciders this fall, pomegranates are an arguably overlooked fall fruit that can be added as a main flavor in a cocktail.

If you prefer a stronger pomegranate flavor, you can swap out the club soda for a pomegranate flavored seltzer!
4. Spooky Season Aperol Spritz
