Aperol was originated in 1919 in Padua, created by the Barbieri brothers, specialists in liqueur production since 1880. Aperol was launched behind the revolutionary idea of creating the lightest of liqueurs: an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11%. Aperol is an infusion of precious herbs and roots in a perfectly balanced combination. Bright orange in colour, Aperol has a unique bitter-sweet taste deriving from a secret recipe that is guarded jealously and has remained unchanged over the course of time. Two of the mostly recognizable elements in its distinctive taste are: the fresh and lively sweetness – given by the Oranges – and the unmistakable bitter tang – given by the Rhubarb. One of the secrets for success is freshness: liqueur manufacturing is completed in one day and the day after the trucks are ready for shipment.
Aperol Spritz is one of the most widely consumed spirits in Italy and is made by mixing Aperol with Prosecco and a splash of soda in a wine glass full of ice and a slice of orange; light, sparkling and refreshing, it’s the ideal drink for starting the evening and for any social occasion. It can be enjoyed before dinner as a true Italian aperitif, as a lighter option at an after-work get-together with colleagues or friends or combined with food. Aperol Spritz has fast become a cult drink outside of Italy, extending to neighboring countries and even across the continents.
To create your perfect Aperol Spritz:
Fill a large wine glass with ice and pour in:
- 3 parts Prosecco (75 ml)
- 2 parts Aperol (50 ml)
- 1 dash of Soda Water (25 ml)
Garnish with a slice of fresh orange, sit back, relax and enjoy.
