National Aperitif Day
If you need a little something to whet your whistle, go grab a glass. It’s National Aperitif Day, a spirited holiday observed annually on the third Thursday in May.
According to Merriam-Webster, an aperitif is “an alcoholic drink that people drink before eating a meal.” An aperitif stimulates the appetite and palate without overwhelming ones' senses. Best served cold, these clean and light cocktails typically contain vermouth, gin or Campari.
In honor of National Aperitif Day, why not whip up one or two tried-and-true or brand spankin' new refreshing cocktail recipes?
