When mention “Italian lifestyle”, it is associated with socials in a chill out vibe over food and drinks. During summer time, sun hats and shades are out and in Aperol language, orange is joy.
Under the Aperol’s Together We Joy global platform launched in March 2019, Singapore is taking the lead in Asia to debut #JointheJoy campaign with their approachable tipple, Aperol Spritz.
What is Aperol Spritz?
“Spritz Veneziano” or short “Spritz” is a cocktail consists of 90ml prosecco, 60ml local bitters (like Aperol, Campari, Cynar, Select etc ) and a splash of soda water.
The original recipe born in the 1800s used sparkling white wine or red wine diluted with a splash of water. This veterans from Habsburg (Austrian and Spanish dynasty) who had travelled to Venetian at that time was not used to strong beverages and would ask the local host to ‘spritzen’ (spray in German language) their drink with a drop of water into their wine to make it lighter.
Later in the 1920s, Spritz in Venice and Padua was combined with local bitters (which normally served in soda and ice). The latter is where Aperol was originated since 1919 and the popularity of the cocktail became the signature for the brand.
