  • 200g raw beetroot, grated
  • juice 8 lemons
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 300ml Aperol
  • ice
  • 750ml Prosecco, chilled


  1. First, make the beetroot lemonade. In a bowl, stir together the beetroot, lemon juice and sugar. Steep in the fridge for at least 1 hr, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a large jug to get rid of the pulp.

  2. To make the cocktail, pour 25ml of the beetroot lemonade into each glass, followed by 50ml of Aperol and a few ice cubes. Top with Prosecco and serve.
