The Story Behind The Citrus Highball

Highballs are one of my favorite drinks to make at home, especially after a long day. Not only is this recipe super easy with only two ingredients, it’s also beautifully balanced.


  • 1 ½ ounces Aperol
  • 4 ounces grapefruit soda
  • Orange twist for garnish (optional)


  1. Pour Aperol into a Highball glass with ice and top with grapefruit soda.
  2. Stir, and then garnish with an orange twist, if using.
