Ital­ian sparkle

Ex­pe­ri­ence la dolce vita with Aperol Spritz at Le Méri­dien Bangkok

Thailand Tatler - - TATLER FOCUS APEROL SPRITZ -

Aperol, the iconic Ital­ian liqueur, and Ita­la­sia Trad­ing, launched the Aperol Spritz pop-up bar on 16th No­vem­ber 2018 at the Le Méri­dien Bangkok, of­fer­ing guests the chance to win a one-night stay in the ho­tel’s Cir­cu­lar Room, in­clu­sive of the break­fast buf­fet at Lat­est Recipe for two (worth 15,300 baht). The Aperol Spritz pop-up bar is com­ple­mented by clas­sic Ital­ian ci­c­chetti bar snacks by Marco Cam­marata, ex­ec­u­tive chef of Le Méri­dien Bangkok. Guest mixol­o­gists will cu­rate the de­li­cious drinks it serves un­til the end of April 2019. This is a rare op­por­tu­nity to taste the authen­tic Aper­i­tivo Ital­iano at the ho­tel on Su­ra­wong Road.

Aperol is char­ac­terised by its bright or­ange colour and its unique taste, which is at­trib­uted to a se­cret recipe that has re­mained un­changed since its in­cep­tion. The heady mix in­cludes in­fu­sions of se­lected in­gre­di­ents such as high-qual­ity fruits— or­ange and rhubarb in par­tic­u­lar—and many other herbs and roots, each in per­fect pro­por­tion. Aperol Spritz, the brand’s sig­na­ture drink, is lively and evokes the chic Ital­ian life­style. Its unique taste is de­li­ciously Ital­ian and yet it oozes in­ter­na­tional ap­peal.

The quintessen­tial aper­tif, Aperol Spritz is an iconic drink that is among the most con­sumed cock­tails on the Ital­ian penin­sula. It fea­tures Prosecco and Aperol poured over ice in a wine glass with an added dash of soda and a gar­nish of zesty sliced or­ange to fin­ish. Light, sparkling and re­fresh­ing, it is the ideal drink for ev­ery so­cial oc­ca­sion: it can be en­joyed as a stim­u­lant to the ap­petite be­fore lunch or din­ner in the true style of an Ital­ian apéri­tif, as a lighter op­tion at an af­ter­work get-to­gether with col­leagues and friends, or as an ac­com­pa­ni­ment to food. Aperol Spritz has fast be­come a cult drink out­side Italy, ex­tend­ing to neigh­bour­ing Eu­ro­pean coun­tries and even across con­ti­nents to the Asia Pa­cific re­gion. n
