Italian Orange

During a recent visit to Italy, my cousin and her husband discovered Aperol.  I know it sounds like something meant to be added to an engine…it is, however, a perfectly orange ‘aperitivo liqueur’  which the Italians have taken to drinking in the late afternoon as a spritz.  Based on an infusion of ‘selected herbs and roots’, it has a bright, earthy taste.  A taste which, in my experience, one either loves or hates – my husband says it tastes like dirt.  I love it – perhaps having Italian ancestry helps!
