Looking for the perfect easy-to-make aperitif? Look no further…

With some sunny weather lined up for the coming weeks, it’s more important than ever to get the social calendar out and start planning.

Whether that’s dinner with friends in the garden or the terrace, a picnic or firing up the BBQ, everyone knows picking the right food and drinks is key to a successful get-together.

Our Italian friends actually have a name for these types of gatherings – they call them Aperitivo. And if you’re wondering what it takes to organise these everyday Aperitivo moments, look no further! We’ve got you covered…

If you’re looking for an ice-cold and delicious drink to kick things off, you can’t go wrong with an Aperol Spritz. Bright orange in colour, it’s the perfect aperitif to sip on while in the company of your friends and family this summer. Its unique infusion of herbs and roots are sure to whet your appetite and as a brilliant added bonus, it couldn’t be easier to make!

At any given moment, you’re just three simple steps away from enjoying a delicious Aperol Spritz…

To create the perfect Aperol Spritz at home, follow the simple 3-2-1 recipe of three parts prosecco, 2 part Aperol and 1 part soda. Fill a large white wine glass with plenty of ice, pour in 75ml of Prosecco followed by 50ml of Aperol, add a splash (25ml of soda), stir and garnish with a slice of orange.

And if you’re wondering what food to serve alongside your refreshing drink, we can help you there too. Tesco have got you covered with an incredible range of easy-to-make light bites, from their tasty Firepit range of mouth-watering BBQ essentials to Mediterranean sharing plates that are perfect to nibble on.

So, what’s next? Fire up the grill, hit up your mates and head to your local Tesco to pick up everything you need to create the perfect summer serve and BBQ spread.
