About Aperol Aperitivo

Aperol is the sweeter, less bitter, lower ABV cousin of Campari.  But, don't confuse its approachability with weakness! Like it's more intense cousin, Aperol is an essential component of every cocktail lover's homebar. From the Spritz to the Paper Plane to the Ten Spot, it can shine as either lead guitar or second fiddle. Its more subtle features can lend the same distinctive, citrusy bitterness of Campari without stealing the show.

Interestingly, Aperol was first introduced in 1919 by the Barbieri brothers, who were looking for a new product to add to their range of liqueurs. They came up with Aperol as a lighter and more refreshing alternative to the bitter digestifs that were popular at the time.

Tasting Notes

Aperol Aperitivo has a bright orange color and a distinct bittersweet flavor. On the nose, it offers hints of orange peel, rhubarb, and herbs. On the palate, it is refreshing and slightly sweet, with a delicate bitterness that lingers on the finish.

Suggested Serves

Too many cocktailers fail to dust off this orange beauty unless making the famous spritz.  We think it deserves more attention:

Production Notes

Aperol Aperitivo is made using a secret blend of herbs and roots, including bitter and sweet oranges, rhubarb, gentian, and cinchona. These ingredients are infused in alcohol and then blended with water and sugar to create the final product. Aperol contains 11% alcohol by volume and is best served chilled.

Overall, Aperol Aperitivo is a versatile and refreshing liqueur that is perfect for creating classic cocktails or enjoying on its own. Its unique flavor profile, bright orange color, and long history make it a must-have ingredient for any home bartender or cocktail enthusiast. Whether you're sipping on an Aperol Spritz or trying out a new cocktail recipe, Aperol Aperitivo is sure to delight your taste buds.

    Bought this to make aperol spritzes, which I have had at restaurants and enjoyed. I found the classic recipe to be a little too Aperol had a bitterness to it that I didn't enjoy. Next one was more prosecco, less aperol and it was delicious. A spritz of orange juice or muddled raspberries were nice additions too. Mix it and make it your own!
