Pairs Perfectly with Food

Aperol Spritz is best known as the drink of the Italian occasion of aperitivo: a social moment with a light drink with some snacks to transition from day to night. 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 to different types of food and moments, from a quick toast after a long day to those relaxed weekend brunches we all love.
