My Recipe for a Summer's Day with Aperol Sprtiz*

Aperol Spritz , the 'taste of summer' cocktail consists of 3 parts prosecco, 2 parts Aperol and one part soda. Super easy to make, this refreshing 'taste of summer' can be easily created by clicking here and watching the video.

In light of the new drink, Aperol challanged me to share a taste of my summer by giving you a recipe for a summer day in the life of Amy Elizabeth:

3 Parts Passion
Do it with passion or not at all. I am an all or nothing kind of person. When I commit to start something I will give it 110% until failure, and then I will pick myself back up and continue trying. This summer I have been extremely busy. Working 9 hour days, running my blog, finding time for my gym training and meal prepping and completing freelance graphic design work. For a lot of people this would be the summer from hell, but for me this summer has been perfect. Because it has been filled to the brim with the things that I am most passionate about: my career, my blog and my health. 

2 Parts Company 
 What is the point in having amazing experiences, striving for new goals and working towards your dreams if there is no one around to share them with? Company is what helps to turn an experience into a memory. A huge part of my summer recipe is the company you can share those precious moments with: friends who have helped me through dark times, laughed with me through amazing times and never been more than a phonecall or dodgy snapchat away and family who have unconditionally supported every decision and loved me regardless of the mistakes I've made.

1 Part Relaxation
When all is said and done, hard work must come hand in hand with down time. The final component in the recipe for my perfect summer is relaxation. Time with yourself, for yourself. Time away from social media and the never ending stream of communication of today's society. Time to recharge your body and mind and find peace with yourself. My perfect relaxation is the pool and sauna at my gym: a time where my phone is in the locker and no one can contact me. 

Leave your comments below and let me know what your perfect recipe would be and don't forget to try this refreshing cocktail and let me know what you think


  1. What a great idea! Couldn't agree more that nothing is the same unless you can share it with someone!

  2. I'm so glad we have the summer breaks, not sure what I'd do without them! x
