Product description

Enjoy a daytime cocktail with Aperol Liqueur, the perfect aperitivo. Originally created in 1919 in Padova, Italy, Aperol features a unique bittersweet taste and bright orange color, both of which derive from the secret, original recipe that has remained unchanged for over a century. An infusion of zesty orange, herbs and roots with a touch of vanilla make for a perfectly balanced combination and offers a texture that's velvety and rounded with long-lasting orange flavor. An ideal addition to your home bar, Aperol is the quintessential aperitivo. Aperol is an irreplaceable component in the original Aperol Spritz, a deliciously simple cocktail made with Aperol, prosecco, soda water and an orange slice. The bright flavors and easy preparation make it a perfect pre-dinner cocktail or complement to a casual brunch. The 1L bottle of liqueur is 11% alcohol by volume. Aperol is a premium Italian aperitivo and an iconic symbol of aperitif culture, having celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2019. Cin Cin!

    Good flavor. A little less bitter than Campari, slightly sweeter. Both are good for bittering in different mixed drinks. I'd use this in a gin-based drink and Campari with whiskeys.

FAQs

Aperol goes well with many fizzy drinks of the light, fruity, citrusy, and/or sweet persuasions. Try mixing Aperol with prosecco for a pared-down spritz; with grapefruit soda for a bittersweet, pink refresher; with Vanilla Coke for an earthy, coffee-tinged indulgence; with ginger beer for a Highball-like hit of vanilla and cream; and with beer for an unexpectedly elegant mixture of bitter flavors that mesh well together. One of the benefits of Aperol is that, as a bittersweet aperitif liqueur, it pairs well with a large number of other beverages and is great for experimentation.
Aperol is a bittersweet aperitif liqueur with a bright orange color and a relatively low alcohol by volume (ABV) of 11%. In keeping with its aperitif designation, Aperol is generally consumed before dinner to stimulate the appetite — often in combo with Prosecco and soda water as part of the ever-popular Aperol Spritz cocktail. The actual ingredients of Aperol are top secret, but we know it includes rhubarb, citrus oil from bitter oranges and sweet oranges alike, cinchona bark, and gentian root.
No, Campari and Aperol are not the same thing — for starters, Aperol has a sweeter flavor than Campari’s bitter flavor profile (which is well suited for famous cocktails like the Boulevardier and Negroni). Aperol has an ABV of 11% compared with Campari’s 20.5% to 28.5% ABV, and Aperol’s ingredients differ from those of Campari significantly (Aperol contains rhubarb, sweet and bitter orange citrus oils, cinchona bark, and gentian root, while Campari’s dry ingredients are soaked and steeped for 15 days in vats, making the final mix extremely bitter).
Yes, Aperol is a lovely casual gift or a contribution to a party. Because its stock is on the rise (people absolutely love light drinks these days) and young adults are all about natural ingredients, Aperol is a great addition to social engagements. You can mix Aperol with a number of different mixers, including grapefruit soda, Prosecco, Vanilla Coke, beer, and ginger beer — versatility is always appreciated when a bottle is taking up real estate on a minibar!

About The Brand

Aperol was crated by the Barbieri brothers and launched in 1919 at the Padua International Fair, soon becoming one of Italians' favorite liqueur, now taking the world by storm. It's best known for its signature serve, the Aperol Spritz, which is Italy's most popular cocktail and ranks among the world's top 10 best-selling cocktails (Drinks International, January 2020). 



How To Make An Aperol Spritz

Aperol Spritz

  • liqueur

The orange is unmistakable, a vibrant color that lights up your toasts and adds joy to the moment. Everything else is brought to the table by the inner lighthearted spirit of the Aperol Spritz: the spirit that makes people spontaneously come together and sparks nothing but good times.

Foxy Aperol Spritz

  • liqueur

A sparkling wine-based cocktail traditionally served in the northern part of Italy during "apertif hour". Essential to the spritz is an Italian bitter orange liqueur such as Aperol, which is in the same family as Campari but a little less bitter and a little more refined. This Simple Aperol Spritz is fairly low in alcohol, luckily, because it goes down a little too easily! Cin cin!

Minty Spritz

  • liqueur

This minty spritz is twist on the insanely popular Aperol Spritz. A low-alcohol cocktail means you can enjoy more than one and not overindulge. We love this classic aperitif for the holidays because of the bright, bold colors and distinctive flavor.
