Aperol's history

The bitter orange aperitif has a rather interesting history, starting in Italy.

It was born in 1919 although it can be traced to 1805.

Aperol was marketed around Italy as a drink for women and "sportive people".

When the 1950s came around the 3-2-1 Aperol Spritz recipe became popular, and it hit worldwide status in the 2000s.

What are the ingredients?

The ingredients you need for the luscious cocktail are as follows:

  • prosecco
  • aperol
  • soda water
  • ice
  • orange for garnish
