Now that spring has officially decided to come visit us in Rome, it’s like the city has woken up. Light until late, nice weather, and, most importantly, no rain! It’s makes such a difference and it’s so nice to leave work and have it not be cold and rainy. It certainly makes you want to celebrate with a little pre-dinner apertivio, hence this photo of Aperol. Think of it as Campari’s lesser known cousin, but I actually prefer it’s slightly less bitter taste. Or course it can be used to make spritz or sipped on its own, and you can buy it in a large bottle for mixing or even this cute little bottles for a pre-mixed aperitif. The color and the shape of the bottle made it irresistible to shoot and just writing this post makes me want to crack open another. What’s your favorite spring-time drink?
