This summer, Aperol is set to turn the UK ‘orange’ as it flows through the nation at a series of special events: the ‘Aperol Spritz Social’.
Following last year’s hugely successful Socials, the ever-popular aperitif will tour a host of new locations across the country, to get summer underway with Aperol Spritz. Exclusive pop-up bars will be arriving in London, Manchester, Bristol and Brighton between May and August, and will provide the perfect spot for urbanites to begin their evening.
The Aperol Spritz Social will kick-off in Manchester this weekend in Albert Square, before turning London, Bristol and Brighton ‘orange’ through the summer. There will also be a special DJ set from Radio 1’s Clara Amfo from 6.30pm-7.30pm!
The Aperol Spritz Socials will appear for a limited time across some of the UK’s most cosmopolitan areas, providing city dwellers with an ideal after-work meeting place to catch up with friends and enjoy a glass of Aperol’s sparkling 3-2-1 Spritz serve. The pop-up bars will include an Instaprint booth and screen where guests can instantly print their #ItStartsNow pictures, as well as a socially powered playlist, a treasure hunt, and ping-pong and foosball tables.

You can also make your own Aperol Spritz at home! Aperol Spritz is one of the most widely consumed spirits in Italy and is made by mixing Aperol with Prosecco and a splash of soda in a wine glass full of ice and a slice of orange; light, sparkling and refreshing, it’s the ideal drink for starting the evening and for any social occasion. It can be enjoyed before dinner as a true Italian aperitif, as a lighter option at an after-work get-together with colleagues or friends or combined with food. Aperol Spritz has fast become a cult drink outside of Italy, extending to neighboring countries and even across the continents.
To create your perfect Aperol Spritz fill a large wine glass with ice and pour in:
- 3 parts Prosecco (75 ml)
- 2 parts Aperol (50 ml)
- 1 dash of Soda Water (25 ml)
- Garnish with a slice of fresh orange, sit back, relax and enjoy.
