THE NIGHT HERON’S COCKTAIL OF THE MONTH – APEROL SPRITZ

0

Aperol was invented in 1919 by Luigi and Silvio Barbieri. This classic Italian aperitif is made from gentian [a herb commonly used to aid digestion], rhubarb and cinchona [from a South American tree used to make quinine]. And oranges. The remaining ingredients are a secret, now owned by the Campari Group.

‘Apero’ is Italian slang for aperitif. Lighter in colour than its stablemate Campari, at 11% it also has half the alcohol content.

This spring classic comes into its own as the days warm and lengthen and the desire for a light yet refreshing drink increases. Perfect accompaniment to outdoor pre-dinner drinks, or a light lunch!

Recipe

60ml Aperol
90ml Castelbert Prosecco
30ml of Soda Water

Garnish with a slice of orange
