Isn’t it strange to think that just a few short years ago no one in Perth even knew what an Aperol Spritz was? We were just sitting around drinking plain old prosecco thinking it was the best thing ever, not realising that the addition of the magical liquid that is Aperol would make it three thousand times better.
And while we would never say no to a glass of prosecco, we would pretty much always prefer it with a splash of Aperol and some soda, because nothing says summer fun times like an Aperol spritz!
Here are 12 of the best spots to get an Aperol Spritz in Perth.
If you like the sound of a seriously fabulous Italian man with a seriously fabulous Italian accent exclaiming ‘Spritz Time’ as he puts the finishing touches on your Aperol Spritz at your table, then you’ll want to get yourself to Spritz Spizzicheria. Obviously these guys do a dang good spritz, complete with a big scoop of grapefruit sorbet that tastes just like sherbet. Yum.
The crew at Benny’s have started making their very own Aperol sorbet—a sweet addition to everyone's fave Summer drink. The sorbet slowly melts into the Italian prosecco to make one of the most delicious drinks to ever exist.
There’s no better place to be on a sunny day than in the courtyard out the back of The Standard with an Aperol Spritz in hand. Grab a charcuterie board and settle in for the afternoon.
Il Lido is good for just about everything so it’s really no surprise they do a darn good Aperol spritz. We’d recommend gathering a group of friends for a long lunch and kicking the whole thing off with an Aperol spritz or two.
Drinking an Aperol spritz on the deck at Odyssea while overlooking the ocean is what summer is all about, and considering they are only $10 a pop you can afford to have a couple!
Pizza and Aperol spritz, now this is heaven. While we love the fact that Pappagallo is BYO, it’s hard to go past the Aperol spritz. Lucky for you, we’ve got a solution. Start with an Aperol spritz for everyone at the table and then crack that bottle of wine when the mains come out. You’re welcome.
The Blue Flamingo
The Blue Flamingo is all about good times, and there’s no good time drink quite like an Aperol spritz. These guys hosted a few Aperol parties last summer with pitchers of Aperol spritz and Aperol sorbet from the Gusto Gelato crew. Our fingers and toes are crossed for a repeat this summer.
Henry Summer makes their summer spritz with a dash of kombucha and the tang factor is what we would call perfection. They also serve it with an olive which we kind of love.
The Old Laundry
Another great courtyard, another great Aperol spritz spot. Get some dishes to share from The Old Laundry and an Aperol spritz for everyone!
The Beach Club
Whether you’re heading here for a big Sunday fun-day or you’re going for more chilled out Saturday lunch, an Aperol spritz is always the way to go when you’re at The Beach Club.
The crew at Petition know their cocktails just as well as their wine and they make a mean Aperol spritz. Get some Fremantle occie and the broccoli salad to nibble on while you sip away your troubles.
Head to Lalla Rookh for an evening of good eating and great drinking. Get the chef’s menu for $65 a head and start the night with a spritz!
