A new opportunity has been created by all Mediterraneo outlets to enjoy a unique Italian drink: the Aperol Spritz.
This drink is perfect for those who work hard all week and are looking for a way to relax after a long day. Many in bustling Nairobi get off work extremely exhausted and seek out a spot to unwind with friends after work. At this point, no one expects to eat much since dinner is expected soon after; perfect for an aperitif.
Aperitifs are drinks that are served before a meal and they stimulate the appetite. They have low alcohol content, and are often dry or even bitter rather than sweet. Examples include Prosecco, Vermouth, Campari or Aperol. In the past, drinkers took these drinks neat; today, they are often mixed with other drinks. In Italy, these drinks are part and parcel of the social life – gatherings are as much about the food and drink as they are about socialising.
Aperol Spritz is an aperitif with a unique taste from Triveneto. This drink was launched by the Barbieri Brothers in 1919 at the Padua International Fair in Italy. It took the country by storm, and to this day, is still Italy’s favourite drink. This drink makes the perfect accompaniment for bruschetta, small chunks of parmesan cheese, Parma Ham Crostini and other bitings, as done in Italy during Aperitivo time. It is also the perfect drink for brunch.
A daily Aperol Spritz can be an enjoyable routine, whether right before the match or just to relish with close friends. You can now get this drink at Mediterraneo for 650Kshs.
