Sweet orange apéritif

Bottle of bitter orange apéritif, like Aperol

When a drink calls for this ingredient, it typically means Aperol – the sweetest, lowest-proof of the red Italian bitter family. While Aperol can often be used interchangeably with its bitterer cousins (Campari, Gran Classico, et. al.), it has a unique character that comes from its lower alcohol content and greater focus on sweet orange peels, along with rhubarb, chinchona, and a bit of gentian.

Cappalletti is also quite sweet and can work in drinks that call for Aperol, although it’s significantly more bitter.

Also Known As

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
