Where to Find a Good Aperol Spritz in Dallas

Skip the rosé in favor of this low calorie cocktail.

I’m really late to the Aperol Spritz party. I’m embarrassed to say that I didn’t even know what an Aperol Spritz was until recently. I mean, I’d seen some friends hashtag it when they Instagrammed from the Amalfi Coast (still jealous), but I guess I thought it was just some sort of Italian soda; like how you can get Coca Light in Mexico.

Finally, one fateful afternoon this summer, I ordered an Aperol Spritz at a Los Angeles hotel pool and, you guys, those things are delightful. It satisfied both my thirst and my goal of achieving a slight buzz. Plus, the simple mix of Prosecco, soda, and Aperol means fewer calories and a perfect choice for health-conscious sippers. I want one right now.

So, where can you find a true Italian-inspired Aperol Spritz in Dallas? This spritz-loving girl did the work for you.

 

*Note: this list is only for pure Aperol Spritzes. Some spots, such as Lounge 31 and Parigi, jazz them up with vodka or Tanqueray, and that’s not what we’re here for today.

The first of two Tim Headington restaurants to boast a great spritz, The Joule restaurant has a version that would best be enjoyed out on its Main Street-facing patio.

I’ll be honest, I’ve never tried an Aperol Spritz here, but I’m sure the charming, authentic Italian spot would nail it.

This list’s second Tim Headington resto swaps out the soda for Rosa Vermouth, but I’m not mad at it.

Uchi’s chill upstairs sister restaurant serves up Aperol and sparkling wine on its amazing brunch menu, which joins Americano’s as one of the best in Dallas.
