Italian Aperol Spritz Cocktail Recipe – Aperitivo – Vincenzo’s Plate

Italian Aperol Spritz Cocktail – Aperitivo – Vincenzo’s Plate

Aperol is an Italian aperitif made of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb, and cinchona among other ingredients.

Aperol was originally produced by the Barbieri company, based in Padua, but is now produced by the Campari company. While Aperol was originally created in 1919, it did not become successful until after World War II. Although it tastes and smells much like Campari, Aperol has an alcohol content of 11%—less than half of Campari. Aperol and Campari have the same sugar content. However, Aperol is milder and less bitter. Campari is also much darker in color. Aperol to be sold in Germany has an alcohol content of 15% to avoid German container deposit legislation regulations. Spritz, an aperitif cocktail, is often made using Aperol.

Although it has not been frequently submitted to spirit ratings competitions, in two recent submissions, Aperol received high marks. In 2007, Wine Enthusiast rated Aperol in its 90-95 point category. At the 2010 and 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the Aperol entry received double-gold medals—the highest available award.

As of April 7, 2010, Aperol is the official sponsor of Moto GP, the Grand Prix of Motorcycle racing.

Aperol announced a partnership with Manchester United to become the club’s Official Global Spirits Partner from January 1, 2014 until the end of the 2016/2017 season.
