Aperol is huge in Italy, there's no doubt about it! It's catching on in the UK too, even with the inclement weather and iffy summers.

To make an Aperol Spritz (their signature serve), place ice in the wine glass, add 2 parts Aperol, 3 parts Prosecco and add the orange slice. Delicious!

It's unique flavour and colour is achieved through thier subtle blend of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and an array of herbs and roots - an unchanged secret recipe since 1919.

Aperol was launched by the Barbieri company, based in Padua, in 1919 on the occasion of the Padua Exhibition - introducing the revolutionary idea of an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11%.

After the second world war, it really took off, becoming a major success in Italian homes and bars. In the early nineties, the Barbieri company was acquired by Barbero and Aperol has developed even further.

Today it is enjoyed by over 3.4 million Italians!

I suppose there is always someone who will disagree with the majority but I must add I am not alone in this. We first encountered this excuse for a drink in the Italian lakes. Garda to be precise. No matter how you dress it up up with the various complimentary components, soda, proseco et al it is truly dreadful. Sorry.

Aaah, the memories, of sitting in St Marco Square Venice, sipping Aperol Spritz in the warm sunshine. 3 parts Aperol, 2 parts Aperol, 1 part soda over ice, and don't forget the orange slice!!!

Went on a weekend break to Padova and tried this drink, it\'s fantastic and makes a great summer aperitif. Can be mixed with lemonade or prosecco and soda. Try it, this is a good price.

The Angel's must of been listening to find a site to buy Aperol on-line my husband and I both lived in Venice for a looooong time. We are currently living in Senegal but are shortly to go to the UK for a while. The aperol I've ordered will be waiting at my Dad's when we get there. We both miss venice terribly we know we'll be able to live there again soon but in the meantime to be able to have a spritz will keep our home fires burning. I even have a spritz e aperol bag, a friend in venice bought me, that we hang on the front door to be sure to remember in true venetian style that "Any time is Spritz Time!"
