Aperol is bomb. If you haven’t tried it do so immediately! Or wait until evening or brunch time if you’re reading this at 6am. Aperol is an Italian aperitif made from a SECRET recipe (intriguing) that gets its main flavor from bitter orange. It’s a beautiful color and makes a great cocktail. This recipe has it all- it’s pretty, simple and a crowd pleaser, seems impressive but it’s easy to make. You can also very easily toss all the ingredients into a bowl for a quick and easy punch.
