National Spritz Day on August 1 may not be a statutory holiday, but we’re planning to celebrate it in style with Aperol, the iconic orange bittersweet aperitif at the heart of the beloved Aperol Spritz.
To say the Aperol Spritz has exploded in popularity in recent years would be an understatement. According to Drinks International (DI), its status as a bestseller has been in the works since 2017, when it was ranked the 22nd bestselling cocktail in the world. It cracked DI’s top 10 list in 2019 and has remained there in every ranking since. If you’ve ever struggled to strike the right balance when making your Aperol Spritz at home, fear no more: Aperol has just launched a convenient 375 ml pack size, containing the perfect amount for a round of Spritzes at a joyful, intimate backyard gathering with friends.
Plus, for those who can’t decide on the perfect prosecco, Aperol has eliminated the guesswork; starting in September, purchase off-the-shelf Spritz Kits, which include a bottle of Cinzano prosecco. Cheers! —Vita Daily
