Originally created by the Barbieri brothers, Luigi and Silvio, in Italy between 1912 and 1919, Aperol’s refreshing taste is derived from an infusion of botanicals including orange, rhubarb, herbs and roots.
Its stylish colour and versatile flavour makes it brilliant for summer cocktails – why not begin with an Aperol spritz?

What to eat with Aperol spritz
Aperol is the perfect accompaniment to many foods but traditionally served with bitesized appetisers called ‘cicchetti’. This can include anything from olives and tiny portions of vegetables to slices of meat, bread and more.
“Fabulously striking drink, very refreshing... Aperol is
a wonderful iced drink of Italy... the splash of Prosecco
and soda makes it one of the best long drinks around”
