Pro Tips
The < 15% rule
Spirits with ABVs below 15% should be refrigerated. If left out, an open bottle of Aperol® may spoil, but it will last about three months in the fridge.
Sweeten the deal
Flavored syrups can be made at home. Dissolve one part sugar to one part water on the stove, and then let your favorite fruits or herbs steep in the syrup as it cools. Then strain.
The fizz is in
If you're pre-making a batch for a crowd, add the bubbly just before serving your guests to keep their drinks spritzy.

How to

  1. Fill a wine glass with ice and layer in Maker's Mark®, Aperol and syrup.
  2. Top your glass with Prosecco and stir.
  3. Squeeze in orange slice.

Kentucky spirit meets Italian brioHistory of the Spiced Berry Star Hill Spritz

A riff on the Aperol Spritz, this wintry Maker's Mark® version takes cues from its refreshing Italian cousin – a summer staple in Europe since the 1950s. If you're curious about the name we gave it, Star Hill is the Kentucky farm where the Maker's Mark Distillery is built. Star Hill Farm was established in 1805 and is the reason behind that star you see on our label.
