Aperol boasts a unique taste that has made it the most common apéritif in Italy. This world-famous, lightly alcoholic apéritif is made from gentian, bitter orange, cinchona, rhubarb and other ingredients. Aperol is critically acclaimed, receiving double-gold medals in both the 2010 and 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. When you want to serve guests the perfect before-dinner drink, Aperol should be your go-to option.
Aperol became popular in Italy after World War II, particularly among young adults. During the '50s, the famous Aperol Spritz recipe was born, and it remains the ideal cocktail to serve alongside roasted meats and other dishes. It is now produced by the Campari company, but unlike Campari, Aperol is less bitter with a lower alcohol content. For anyone requiring a gentle introduction to apéritif, Aperol is the best choice.
The lovely apéritif is light on the nose with hints of orange, which continue on the palate. The first taste is sweet before giving way to a slight bitterness on the finish. Orange remains clear throughout, with rhubarb aromas coming through at the end. To make the classic Aperol Spritz, first buy Aperol online through Drizly. Then, combine three parts Prosecco, two parts Aperol and one splash of soda over ice and garnish with an orange slice.
