Strawberry, Tequila & Aperol Slushy Drink!!

When Murray & I were in Italy about 9 years ago, we discovered a delicious drink..the Aperol Spritz. Once we were home, we tried to get restaurants to make it, but not many of them had the Aperol. It wasn’t easy to find in the liquor stores in Edmonton either. Over the years, it became known & this year the Aperol Spritz is the ‘summer drink’ I think.

Murray found this recipe for a slushy drink with Aperol on bon  This drink  is a bit on the bitter side, not like the Blended Mojito, which is sweet. But, once  you start drinking it…I did not notice the bitterness & just enjoyed it!!

This Aperol drink has to be frozen for a few hours before serving, so it needs a bit of planning, but you can always make it, pop it in the freezer, then make dinner or whatever!!! We had guests over & they could not get enough of this drink!!

Here is the recipe from bon appetit


Ingredients  makes 4 servings

4 tbsp honey

12 strawberries, clean, hull & cut in half

3/4 cup tequila

1/2 cup Aperol

1/2 cup lime juice

2 cups of ice….you need this just before serving

1 lime for garnish, cut in wheels

4  strawberries for garnish


  1. Dissolve the honey in 2 tbsp hot water
  2. In a blender, combine the honey/water, strawberries, tequila, Aperol & lime juice.
  3. Freeze the mixture in the blender for 3 ` 12 hours
  4. When ready to serve, remove the blender from the freezer. *** after 12 hours it was really frozen so we had to let it sit out for a while until it softened up!
  5. Add 2 cups of ice & blend until thick & smooth
  6. Divide among 4 glasses & garnish with a lime wheel & strawberry slices

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
