A Kmart fan has shared her simple tip for making the perfect Aperol Spritz, and all you need is an air fryer from the budget store.
The Australian woman, called Karen, posted on Facebook, where she said she heats thinly-sliced slices of orange in her device at 100 degrees Celsius for half an hour to dehydrate them and then uses them as decoration for her glass.
Karen posted: ‘For all you Aperol Spritz lovers, here’s a good tip. Thinly sliced orange, cooked at 100 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes in the 3.2 litre air fryer. Voila, dehydrated oranges to decorate your glass.’

It wasn’t long before more than a thousand people praised the simple idea and said they couldn’t wait to try improving their favourite summer drink.
‘This is genius, the best tip ever!’ one woman posted.
‘This speaks to my heart, I was just thinking of drinking one,’ another commenter said.
Some said they already do similar with oranges, as well as lemons and limes for all sorts of drinks:
‘I just use the dehydrator setting and put a big batch on then have heaps stored away in my liquor cabinet for when I need or want them!’ the woman posted.
‘I do lemons and limes too. Dip them in sugar syrup before and they are so good.’

The perfect Aperol Spritz comprises three parts Prosecco; two parts Aperol; one part soda water.
Half fill each glass with ice. Pour in the Prosecco, then the Aperol and finally the soda (do it in this order to stop the Aperol from settling at the bottom of the glass).
Garnish with a slice of orange and/or an olive.
Aperol Spritzes have become increasingly popular in recent years. It is an Italian wine-based cocktail, commonly served as an aperitif in Northeast Italy.
