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.
Among the canon of Italian spirits, Aperol and the Aperol Spritz cocktail are classics, available at a growing range of America's best bars. The lurid red hue is recognizable from across the room. It's light on every count-in terms of alcohol content, sweetness level and texture. The gentle sweet-bitter profile goes down easy-especially when lightened with bubbles.
