Scene Stealers Aperol Aperitivo Bottle
Aperol, Italyís #1 selling spirit, is taking the states by storm. This Italian aperitif was created in Padua, Italy in 1919 when brothers Luigi and Silvio Barbieri introduced the revolutionary idea of a spirit with an alcohol content of 11%. Though itís been around for almost a century, the original recipe remains unchanged. Itís zesty flavor and vibrant orange color is achieved through a subtle blend of aromatic herbs and spices, with hints of mandarin and bitter oranges. The low alcohol content makes it more versatile than other aperitifs used in cocktails, and allows for great mixability. A short list of Aperol recipes includes: Aperol Citrus Martini, Cucumber Aperol Fizz, and Aperol Gin Martini. To feel like a true Italian try mixing an Aperol Spritz, the signature drink of Italy. Itís easy, quick, and refreshing.
