Italy’s beloved taste for Aperol seems to have taken over summer rooftops and it just happens to be the talk of the town. To serve this bitter sweet drink at your next party, go with Select Aperitivo. The unique flavors and colorful drinks can easily translate as a theme party, where guests wear red.
What is this wondrous drink and why should you care? Getting a taste of Venetian culture means drinking and eating like a real Italian. Italy is known to be the birth place of slow food and to Venice locals, Select Aperitivo is just the thing to be enjoyed with pre-dinner bites. Made since the 1920s, this drink is no trend, but a delicious way to launch your night. To get the full experience, Hobnob joined some well-heeled guests at The Hoxton Hotel for an exclusive event. The decor reflected the divine style of Venice, with statues and fountains in the center of itall. We sipped on the refreshing Select Aperitivo cocktail, ate healthy finger foods and reveled in the dreamlike atmosphere.
To make the night special, Select Aperitivo teamed up with a well-known designer and DJ, Harley Viera-Newton, producing a night of fun performances and tastemaker mingling. The all night event epitomized beautiful nights in Venice, launching New York’s rooftop season.
Select Spritz is served in a tall goblet style glass. The bottles were displayed among food for photo ops. See the recipe included with this post.
