Elderflower Aperol and Vodka Spritz

"The sun is setting and that orange glow fills the air. The heat from the day reaches its peak, and you crave sweet relief from the heat. Mix up a Hazy Afternoon Spritzer. This cocktail combines vodka, Aperol, and Elderflower. Those flavors make this cocktail distinctly floral, citrus, and herbaceous. Then add some grapefruit to naturally balance those sweet flavors. This one is guaranteed to help you beat the heat on any summer afternoon."
