A drink on arrival is a great way to welcome friends to your home. Create an Aperol Spritz station so you can have the Aperol Spritz flowing as soon as your guests step foot in the door.
Learn how to make the perfect Aperol Spritz.
SET THE SCENE
Create on-theme ambience! Try styling your gathering with table settings, flowers, the right playlist and menu. Looking for inspo? Here are a few of our favourites;
BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Ditch the dining room table and head to the living room floor for an indoor picnic with a twist. Pop down a picnic rug and cushions for guests to sit on and add an aperitivo platter and spritz. A floral centrepiece will bring a little bit of nature inside!
LONG LUNCH AT HOME
You don’t have to head out to have a long lunch. Recreate the moment at-home with a 3 step menu for friends. Start with Aperitivo hour, an antipasto platter and sourdough, move on to the main course and finish with gelato delivered from your favourite neighbourhood spot. The drinks? Aperol Spritz of course!
ALL ORANGE EVERYTHING
Why not try colour-theming your catch up? Our go-to is Aperol orange. A table runner, a bowl of oranges, a mix of orange flowers and Spritz is all it takes. Bonus points if your group matches their outfits! PLATE UP! You want to be talking, eating and spritzing, not cooking! To make sure you spend as much time socialising, we’ve compiled a list of 10 prep-ahead aperitivo snacks. Our favourites? Bruschetta with a twist and ricotta tortas with marinated capsicum. Salute!
THINGS TO MAKE, SEE AND DO
Make a night of it and get creative with our Spritz-themed virtual art class! Paint along with Danielle Cross as she shows us how to create her abstract #AperolOrange inspired sunset. Whatever your weekend looks like, we hope it’s filled with friends and a refreshing Spritz! Salute!
