An excellent gift for a spritz fan. This easy summer cocktail has been a seasonal favourite for more than half a century.
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. It is arguably the worlds most popular cocktail!
