I'm not much of a cocktail person because most of the time I've tasted overly sweet drinks although I make an exception when I go to warmer climate. I drink daiquiri, pina colada, or a margarita. I also think cocktails are overpriced (I'm cheap). 

But one night, my boyfriend and me were walking around Trastevere. We weren't hungry yet so we didn't go inside a restaurant but instead we decided to grab apertif's. We spotted an empty patio table and I made my boyfriend order me a drink. I told him to surprise me and he came back with aperol spritz. I never had it before and I was surprised that I liked it. It's more bitter than sweet so that was really good. 

Now, we make our apertif with Campari instead of Aperol and it's delicious! Happy Friday!!! I'm so happy it's a long weekend. Happy Family day weekend!


  1. I love aperol/spritz. Like you I am not a fan of cocktails because I find them too sweet and some do taste like medicine. Margarita is an exception as well as Mojito. Tip: Mix the Campari/Aperol with sparkling water. I usually do a 50/50 mix. I drink this from time to time at home.

    1. Thank you! I can't wait when it's warmer and I can make spritz.

  2. Yum! I've never tried aperol, but I love cocktails so I am sure I would enjoy this. :)
