Aperol, now available in the U.S.

I came across this post on Cool Hunting and was intrigued. I lived in Italy, Milan to be specific, for six months and really enjoyed my time there. While there, I developed an appreciation for gelato, quality Italian food and Italian coffee. I still love me some Breyers (Vanilla bean, please. It’s divine!) and Starbucks, but also appreciate all that is Italy. So whenever I come across something that will remind me of my time in Milan, I’m keen to try it.

Aperol, a low-alcohol aperitif is a blend of 30 herbs, spices and fruits. According to Cool Hunting, it’s light and refreshing like the English Pimm’s, but has a more pronounced citrus taste. With an alcohol content of !!%, it’s ideal for spring and summer cocktails, Aperol is best enjoyed mixed with soda, vodka or champagne.

I have never tried it, but the next time I’m out for drinks with friends, I’ll ask for some Aperol. Perhaps a sip will take me back to Milan. 🙂
