A classic rhubarb and orange flavoured aperitif from Italy. The original recipe for Aperol dates back to 1919. The drink gained great popularity after the Second World War and is quite similar to Campari.

Dream Aperitivo !
Aperol is the king of aperitivo, it is full flavoured and deliciously refreshing. It balances sweet and bitter perfectly.
Try it with ice and a slice of lemon (my favourite) or with soda or prosecco for a longer drink. Either way, it is delicious and refreshing.
Just what is it with us Italians ?

I discovered this recently on a trip to Italy. I have always loved Campari, but I now prefer this - the wonderful orange scent has to be smelt. Its not a sweet orange, but more the proper scent from the orange peel. Nice neat or with soda or tonic.
