APEROL SPRITZ: Italy’s favourite and now yours

Aperol Spritz is the most widespread and commonly enjoyed aperitif in Northern Italy: A traditional ice-breaker and symbol of a lively atmosphere, it is the drink of the young and social.

It’s easy to taste why the Italians love it so much. In fact, in and around Venice, the home of Aperol and Italy’s Spritz tradition, more than 300,000 glasses of Aperol Spritz are served every day: equaling some 200 toasts per minute – around the clock!

A perfect aperitif

Bright orange in colour, it has a sophisticated taste profile, with balanced infusions of bitter and sweet oranges, rhubarb, herbs and a touch of vanilla. A refreshing aperitif, it’s the perfect toast.

Cactus Twist

Many Venetian towns had their own specific version of this drink. In the last decade, the Aperol Spritz with Prosecco is the most common type served in Italy. A Cactus twist on an Italian classic, our spritz is mixed with Aperol, sparkling Cava, fresh lemon juice, Sprite and garnished with a slice of orange.

Only available until Mother’s Day!

The Aperol Spritz is an exclusive Mother’s Day cocktail available from Thursday May 5th – Sunday May 8th. To make a Mother’s Day reservation, please contact your nearest Cactus Club Cafe.
