Summer is the perfect time to enjoy drinks in the sun and with the Platinum Jubilee happening next week, get ready for the royal occasion by decorating your home in bunting and buying your favourite drinks. Refreshing and citrusy, one of the best summery drinks to enjoy is an Aperol Spritz.
In addition to Pimm’s, Aperol Spritz is another one of Britain’s favourite cocktails to drink during the summer. The wine-based cocktail has a mix of bitter and sweet flavours, making it a delightful accompaniment to food and its bubbly also makes it the perfect aperitif.
An Aperol Spritz is also one of the easiest cocktails to make as all you need to do is mix Aperol, Prosecco or champagne together and top with soda water.
While the Italian spirit is different to gins and fizz, it feels equally as refreshing on a hot day and is distinct with its bright orange colour.
If you’re just looking to buy a bottle of Aperol, the cheapest place to find it is on The Bottle Club, which has slashed a 70cl bottle down to just £11.69 from £16.
