APEROL SPRITZING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND
Hyde Park’s top winter activity has returned: Winter Wonderland! Filled with fun rides, food trucks, Christmas market stalls and, of course, it’s very own Aperol Spritz bar – there’s plenty of enjoyment to be had here.
After riding the 70-metre tall Giant Wheel, head to our signature orange Aperol campervan next to the Haunted Mansion. Enjoy an Aperol Spritz with your friends and snap a few photos in front of our fully decorated Spritzmas tree.
Visit us at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland in London from now until the 2nd of January. We’ll see you there!
HOST A FESTIVE ITALIAN FEAST
Why not channel Aperol’s Italian roots and throw your own festive feast? Whether it’s part of your Christmas celebrations or just a fun way to see in the new year, an Italian dinner party is sure to impress your friends.
Prepare a selection of classic Aperitivo bites – from crostini topped with tapenade to flavourful arancini balls – plus a charcuterie board of cured meats, cheese and olives. Serve each of your guests a perfectly poured Aperol Spritz and enjoy the winter festivities!
VISIT PERGOLA ON THE PISTE
Who said Aperol Spritz was just for the summer? It definitely wasn’t us! That’s why we’ve made sure you can share an Aperol Spritz with friends all winter long at Pergola On The Piste.
This iconic Paddington venue is transforming into an Alpine ski lodge from now until March 2023 – so you can get the après ski experience in London this winter.
With delicious food, DJs and live entertainment, there’s no need to travel far to get a taste of the Alps. Soak up the atmosphere and toast to good times with an Aperol Spritz.
GO ICE SKATING
Fancy something more active? Ice rinks are popping up all over the UK this winter – from The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink in Brighton to Skate Manchester – an outdoor rink nestled among the Christmas Markets at Cathedral Gardens.
Wrap up warm as you glide across the ice with friends or family, then head to a nearby restaurant or bar for an Aperol Spritz to top off the perfect evening.
ENJOY A COSY FILM NIGHT
Not all winter catchups have to involve going outside. As the temperature drops or it starts to snow, there’s often no better place to be than curled up on the sofa with friends watching a film.
Choose a Christmas rom-com classic like The Holiday or a feel-good film like Cool Runnings – set at the 1988 Winter Olympics. Don’t forget to supply tasty snacks and a sparkling Aperol Spritz cocktail to add some Spritzmas cheer to your evening.
