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

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
