How to make a perfect homemade Aperol Spritz
Aperol is the perfect aperitif, bright orange in colour, light on alcohol, but with a bittersweet and refreshing taste deriving from the infusion of a blend of high-quality herbs and roots.
Aperol was created by the Barbieri brothers and launched in 1919 at the Padua International Fair, soon becoming one of the Italians’ favorite liqueur, now taking the world by storm. The original recipe has remained unchanged and a secret to this day.
Aperol is a social connector that brings people together. It is about enjoying positive and light-hearted moments, even at home, with whoever you want. You just need a few ingredients to recreate the Italian aperitif mood, are you ready?

All you need now is to invite some special friends over and welcome them with an Aperol Spritz. The drink perfectly matches with food: try it with some snacks and appetizers. The aperitif ritual born in Veneto sees the Aperol Spritz served with some traditional snacks called ”cicchetti”, small dishes that usually include tiny sandwiches, plates of olives and tiny portions of local dishes. Although, throughout the years Aperol Spritz became a versatile drink suitable anytime and for any social occasion: it can be enjoyed as a true Italian aperitif, before lunch or dinner, as a lighter option at an after-work get-together with colleagues and friends, during an informal gathering like a brunch or as an accompaniment with food. Aperol is currently available in 2 sizes, 70 cl to 100 cl
