6 drinks with aperol to make this summer

There’s nothing wrong with a classic Aperol Spritz – you cannot go wrong there.  However, I’m in the mood for something else this year too. I’ve looked around and found a few other drinks containing Aperol – you could call them Aperol Spritz with a twist. I’m planning on trying out all of them one by one. I’m pretty sure I need to get those beautiful ferm LIVING Long Drink Glasses.

Here’s to a great summer full of Aperol Spritz twists

#2 Blackberry Aperol Spritz
#3 Aperol Spritz Sorbet
#4 ferm Living’s Ripple Rhapsody
#5 Aperol Spritz Popsicle
#6 Watermelon Ginger Aperol Spritz Cocktail

4 gin & tonics for your Friday night

As some of you know, I’m quite fond of Gin & Tonics. It all started about two years ago. When I was young, I wouldn’t tough it at all. I was convinced that it wasn’t a drink for me. But as I grew older and wiser, I tasted it again. And now it’s my favourite drink. Actually, we have a Friday night G&Ts club with my oldest friend. We all love a good Hendricks (check out their website – it’s pretty cool), but have tried quite a few other gins as well.

How about you? Are you old school? Or get a kick out of mixing it up with all sorts of things? What is your best gin and tonic? This is a passion that we’ll continue exploring, so if you’ve got any gin suggestions, please let me know.

I’ve collected a few drinks that I’ve tried, or want to try over the next couple of Friday’s.
