Aperitif • Sweet
Italian Apple

Low-ABV spirits like Campari and Aperol may be perfect for summery cocktails like Aperol Spritzes and Americanos, but there’s a place for the bitter liqueurs on fall drink menus, too. "Because people often ask what complements aperitivo besides a Spritz, I created this cocktail,” says Cassandra Womack, bartender at Bidwell Restaurant in Washington D.C. “It's very universal and has a unique finish, especially because it's made with apple cider." Whether you’re crafting your own aperitivo hour or simply craving a new way to use your favorites, this cocktail is a crowd-pleaser.
