A brief history of the Aperol Spritz
Whilst the Aperol Spritz may seem to be a fairly modern cocktail that has graced cocktail bars for the past decade due to its popularity boom, this seasonal favourite has actually been around for a lot longer.
The concept of a ‘spritz’ dates back to the 1800’s in northern Italy, where soldiers found the local wine too strong, so added a splash of water to dilute the taste to become more palatable.
In later years, the water was substituted with bubbles, first with the use of Club Soda, then with sparkling wine or Prosecco, and later stronger fortified wines and liquors were added.
Fast forward to the early 1900’s, the Barberi brothers created a new spirit after inheriting their farther’s liquor business ,which they named Aperol, in reference to the French term for aperitif, which the Oxford dictionary defines as ‘an alcoholic drink taken before a meal to stimulate the appetite’.
This concept has stayed at the core of the Aperol Spritz, which gained popularity in Italy as a light pre-dinner beverage that served as a refreshing drink to whet the appetite.
When the brand was sold in the early 2000’s, the Aperol Sprtiz really took off, with social media and advertising campaigns creating arguably the first of many viral cocktails - and before long, the Aperol Sprtiz was a mainstay on cocktail menus around the world today.
