What Items Can Your Aperol Gift Set Include?

Liquor: Send An Aperol Spritz Gift Pack

The Aperol spritz is known as the Spritz Veneziano and first became popular in Veneto in the 1800s. 

The infusion of herbs and roots in the drink makes it a light drink, perfect as an aperitif before dinner. The Aperol’s alcohol content is only 11%, which makes it an ideal all-day drink, instead of just an aperitif. 

When you curate an Aperol spritz gift basket with us, your giftee will also receive curated cards that includes more information on the drink:

  • History
  • Geography
  • Recipe cards
  • Production methods

This adds a thoughtful touch and makes your gift stand out. If you are looking for an aperol and prosecco gift pack you are in the right place!

Fresh Fruits For Aperol Spritz Cocktails

Where specified, we send only organic fruits with our Aperol spritz gift pack. 

We include fresh fruits locally sourced and organic where possible.

Fresh Herbs And Spices

The characteristic taste of Aperol spritz comes from the herbs it is already infused with. However, any good cocktail can also do with some fresh herbs and spices. 

At 180 Drinks, we leverage fresh and seasonal ingredients. The choice of herbs can help draw out herbal notes in any bitter spirits used.

We can include the perfect assortment of herbs and spices to add that dash of exotic to your Aperol spritz cocktail gift set.

Citrus Notes for Aperol Spritz-Based Cocktails

Adding fresh produce always creates an extra dimension and experience to the drink. We ship seasonal citrus fruits along with your gift as applicable. 

This way, you can complement your gift with seasonal offerings and broaden the appeal of the drink. Especially in winter or summer, you can make a great Aperol spritz cocktail with fresh lemons

Sweeteners 

Where needed, we can also add in some additional sweeteners. 

All our sweeteners are free from artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives.

Bitters For Your Aperol Gift Pack

Well, bitter happens to be the typical flavor profile of the traditional Aperol spritz. But we see no reason why we can’t step beyond that to create some adventurous flavors. 

We can add some of our choicest bitters to the Aperol spritz cocktail gift pack. This allows your giftee to create drinks that run the gamut from sweet to sour.

Garnishes

The standard garnish for aperol spritz drinks or cocktails is the orange wedge. Apart from that, consider adding in:

  • Orange peel
  • Mint
  • Orange slice
  • Rosemary
  • Grapefruit

Ice Cubes

At 180 Drinks, we can also supply large, clear ice cube trays with our Aperol spritz gift basket. Ice cubes are almost standard in most Aperol spritz-based cocktails. It’s usually served in a glass full of ice. But normal ‘refrigerator’ ice won’t do for a gift like this.

Pack in some of our crystal-clear large cube trays.

Our ice cubes don’t easily melt, causing less dilution. The drink stays cold longer. The result? The perfect cocktail.

Glassware For Your Mini Aperol Spritz Gift Set 

There’s nothing better than the good ol’ fashioned wine glass for the Aperol spritz gift set. 

A long-stem glass with a broad opening works well to release all the flavors from the summery drink. The large bowl of the glass is also needed for all the ice you need for the cocktail. 

Check out the product description of your gift basket to see the aperol glass set you can pair with your gift.

Aperol Cocktail Tools 

At 180 Drinks, we can also provide high quality professional barware for your aperol cocktail gifts. Our curated set of bar tools are selected for building drinks with the best practices and durability in mind. 

Each gift illustrates both the art and science of how the tools and ingredients work together to help create high quality drinks. Some of the most common bar tools you can consider adding to your aperol cocktail gift box include:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Bar spoon
  • Measuring tool
  • Strainer
  • Pourer
  • Mixing glass
  • Jigger
professional mixology class tools

Aperol Spritz Gift Basket FAQs

What foods go well with Aperol spritz?

Aperol spritz is the perfect aperitif, but it can also stand on its own as a drink at any time, with or without a meal. 

 

You might find Aperol to be the perfect match for seafood, especially cuttlefish. Sardines are a pretty good combination as well with the Aperol spritz. A cheesy parmesan, we have found, makes for another perfect pairing.

What is the traditional Aperol spritz recipe?

Aperol spritz is as simple as a drink can get. The original recipe as created in Venice calls for a ratio of three parts prosecco, two parts Aperol, and one part soda. 

 

The way it was created is beautiful: light, fizzy, and refreshing. View our individual products to see or Aperol Spritz and prosecco gift packs.
