I have discovered Aperol. That much instagrammed drink of the stylish has hit the Mutton household. On discovering from an instagram friend that Tesco were stocking it I traversed the countryside in search of the nearest store so as I could join the Internet sauve set. On arrival at Tesco we decided to stock up with summer drinking staples.
Aperol is advertised as a drink to mix with Prosecco (I bought mini bottles) and soda to make a spritz.
I took a sip. It was a lot more sour than I expected. I added more Aperol to dumb down the soda. I added more Prosecco to dumb down the Aperol.
I had a sleep.
Instagrammers told me to persevere. I did. I moved on to a hurricane glass in the name of perseverance.
I had another sleep.
Some Instagrammers suggested having just Prosecco in it. One suggested sparkling water instead of soda. One suggested lemonade instead of soda. I now have a few ideas to pursue next weekend. The experiment continues in the Mutton household. It will continue through the summer.
