The biggest selling spirit in Italy, Aperol is becoming increasingly popular for us too.
I would characterize Aperol as an apéritif. It is bright orange in colour and has a blend of aromas including orange, herbs and spices. It is 11% alc/vol, has a smooth sweet taste, with a spicy and slightly bitter finish.
Aperol Spritz — EASY as 1 – 2 – 3!
1. Pour 3 parts Prosecco
2. Add 2 parts Aperol
3. Add 1 part club soda into a large wine glass half-filled with ice.
Add a slice of orange. All done!
The versatile Aperol Spritz has been a popular apéritif in Italy for decades and can be served with snacks and appetizers.
