WHAT IS APERITIVO?
An aperitivo is a pre-meal drink; the experience of aperitivo is a cultural ritual. Derived from the Latin aperire, the tradition is meant “to open” the stomach before dining. Accordingly, for centuries Italians have said cheers – cin cin – over drinks and appetizers in the early evening hours between work and dinner.
Traditionally, an aperitivo is a carbonated, bitter, and low-alcohol beverage, such as the Spritz, which is made with Prosecco, Aperol, and mineral water. More flexible today, orders range from wine to beer to a variety of mixed drinks.
A typical aperitivo spread includes crackers, olives, meats, cheeses, and bread. If you have ever enjoyed a salumi-and-formaggi board with a glass of wine in our restaurants you have had an aperitivo – even if you did not realize it!
