    That’s too much Aperol. For the American pallet it is best (and easier) to have 50% Prosecco, 25% Aperol, and 25% club soda.. For even better taste, use Italian blood orange soda (available in most grocery stores) instead of regular club soda. Also, the Italians typically add a slice of orange, not an olive.
