Hellooooooo summer! It’s that glorious time of the year when wearing less is more, everyone’s wayyy more chilled and day-drinking is not only totally acceptable, it’s encouraged. And nothing says “hey guys, it’s summer. I’m here and I’m ready for the good times,” like an Aperol Spritz.
Made with prosecco, Aperol and soda, the Aperol Spritz is one of those cocktails that’s quickly gaining popularity with us Aussies. Probably because, like the drink itself, we’re fun, light-hearted and a little bit colourful (no, not bright orange—unless you’ve had a bad fake tan).
Besides looking like the perfect summer drink, the Aperol Spritz also tastes like the perfect summer drink. And by that we mean it’s not too sweet, a little bit citrusy and—a hot weather requirement—served refreshingly cold.
Aperol Spritz Summer Sessions
To celebrate the warmer months, there’ll be Aperol Spritz parties held at some awesome bars around Perth where you can get your cocktail on well and good. There’ll be Aperol Spritz available for just $10, so you can enjoy more of them (responsibly, of course). Or, have extra cash left over for delicious food (because we’re never not thinking about eating).
Here’s just a taster of where you can go for a $10 Aperol Spritz (or two!) and good times this summer.
For the whole list of Aperol Spritz events, head here.
