What is Aperol?
Aperol is an Italian bitter apéritif made of gentian, rhubarb, and cinchona, as well as other herbaceous ingredients. It has a vibrant pink/orange hue. Aperol’s name comes from the French slang word for aperitif, which is apero.
Unlike Campari, Aperol has a bit more inherent sweetness. The floral notes work well with simple fruits that won’t overpower the Aperol, as well as white wine and Prosecco or Champagne. A classic Aperol Spritz is a refreshing cocktail made with Aperol, Champagne or Prosecco and sparkling water.
