L’Aperitivo Tonic recipe
Aperitivo cocktails are drinks that are typically consumed before a meal to stimulate the appetite and prepare the palate for food. The term “aperitivo” comes from the Italian word “aperitif,” which means “to open.”
The flavor profile of an aperitivo cocktail is complex and often sophisticated, with a balance of bitter, herbal, and sometimes slightly sweet flavors. This is because the bitterness of the ingredients is thought to stimulate the appetite, preparing the diner’s palate for food. Many aperitivo cocktails also have a lower alcohol content than other cocktails, as they are intended to be sipped slowly over a longer period of time. Aperitivo cocktails are often served with light snacks or finger foods to further stimulate the appetite before a meal.
Some popular aperitivo cocktails include: the Spritz, a Negroni or an Americano. These are just a few examples of aperitivo cocktails, but there are many others to explore and enjoy, like the l’Aperitivo Tonic created by and with Galliano. This easy and refreshing cocktail is a delicious drink especially for when the weather starts to get hot. Fresh & bitter sweet.
