A low-proof Italian aperitif flavored with bitter orange, rhubarb and gentian.
To those who haven’t tried it, some would say Aperol tastes a bit like a lower proof Campari. In some ways there are similarities, as both have orange as a predominate flavor and are certainly bitter. Campari being the more potent in alcohol, orange and bitter of the two. However, once you begin to enjoy Aperol, you will certainly appreciate the more herbal notes and its lighter flavor. Conversely, Aperol also makes a great introduction to the stronger flavor of Campari and other amari.
