History

Italy can lay claim to some of the best drinks in the world – Barolo, Chianti, the ever-present and iconic Peroni beer. Aperol assure us that the secret recipe hasn’t changed since 1919 and, whether you’re inclined to believe them or not, it’s still simply delicious. Aperol hails from Padua, Italy, and is made from a closely-guarded blend of herbs, roots and – of course – orange. The spritz, along with the Negroni, can rightly be considered Italy’s national drink. It’s a simple mix of 3 parts prosecco, 2 parts Aperol and 1 part soda, although the history of the Aperol Spritz is a whole lot more complex.

The spritz (‘spritzen’ is the German for ‘splash’) first made an appearance in the 1950s, when Venetians in Italy substituted the traditional white wine used to mix with the famous liqueur with a sparking equivalent.
