Aperol is a very popular cocktail in Italy and, in recent years, it has conquered the hearts of the Swiss. This is a light aperitif made with sweet herbs, plants and fruits, bright orange in colours and created in 1919 by the brothers Silvio and Luigi Barbieri in Padua, Italy.
Aperol is the fruit of an infusion of plants assembled with an alcohol base, with sweet and bitter oranges, quinine, gentian, rhubarb and other selected herbs.
