Aperol originated in 1919 in Padova, Ital. It was a product of the Barbieri Brothers who launched the revolutionary idea of an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11% alcohol. Today Aperol has become a classic apéritif and increasingly popular in cocktail recipes around the world. Bright orange in color it has a unique bitter-sweet taste deriving from a secret recipe that has remained unchanged since its creation. An infusion of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and cinchona combined with herbs and roots create a perfectly balanced elixir. Aperol is milder in flavor and half the alcohol content of its Campari cousin.
Together with 3 parts of Prosecco, 2 parts of Aperol and a dash of seltz, Aperol makes the perfect Spritz -the irresistible Italian Aperol Spritz.
