Cape Town Bar and Cocktails
What’s more romantic than a sunset-coloured Aperol Spritz, served with consummate style in a generous wine glass? Orange-pink and sparkling, it glistens with beads of bubbles and beckons you to put your lips to its aromatic, tangy fizz? Fun, festive and delicious, it’s not just an ice-breaker. Its refreshing, tongue-tingling burst of exuberance, can add dazzle and drama to your public celebration of love.
Serve it to guests as the couple is signing the register or having pictures taken. Pair it with the canapes (aka antipasti). Toast with it. You can even have it accompany the meal, whatever the format, from brunch to a sit-down dinner. It’s that versatile. The reason? Aperol’s infusions of bitter and sweet oranges, rhubarb, herbs and vanilla cleverly arouse the senses and just beg to be matched with food. Savoury or sweet. What makes it even more appealing is its 11% alcohol by volume, which means you can sip it for longer.

To make Aperol Spritz the way they do in its native Italy, ensure the bar pours equal measures of Aperol and Cinzano Pro-Spritz bubbly into an ice-filled glass, followed by a splash of soda, then garnished with a slice of orange. 50/50 Splash: bravissimo! That’s all it takes. And given that Aperol is one of the world’s fastest-growing spirits brands, loved across the globe and the number one aperitivo in Italy, how can you possibly go wrong.
Looking to minimise the hassle? You can even arrange for Aperol’s super-stylish mobile bar and service staff to take care of everything on your behalf, leaving you free to mingle with guests and bask in the glow of your special day.
It was almost a century ago that two Barbieri fratelli from Padua conjured up their secret Aperol aperitivo recipe. And nothing’s changed. Not the way the two brothers made it back in 1919, nor its enduring popularity worldwide. Something that long-lasting deserves to be the drink of choice on your wedding day.
