Proof66 Notes

Aperol sprang forth in 1919 and with the same recipe blending orange, rhubarb, and other herbs. It is said to have become famous in World War II despite an exceptionally mild alcohol content. It is generally thought of as an herbal liqueur but with a dominant flavor or orange so here, it can be tempting to classify as an orange liqueur (we have opted to list it as an herbal).

Overall, less intense than big brother Campari. A little sweeter, a little less bitter, a little lower ABV, a little less expensive. For my tastes, I found this to be a little too sweet in a Negroni. However, I think I enjoyed this better in a Boulevardier as I feel the sweetness pairs better with bourbon. If someone’s afraid of trying Campari, this is a good substitute to start with.

Looks like the "edit comments" tool was short lived.

Not as bitter as Campari and with and orange flavor added. That about sums it up. If you like Campari and want a little twist on those style cocktails , invest in a bottle.

For me this has to be mixed. It's like it's cousin Campari.

I love this stuff. Quite bitter. Low proof lightens drinks while adding tons of flavor. great with sweet vermouth and cava. great with gin.

A versatile bitter liqueur that seems to mix well with lots of spirits (not rum though, apparently). Lemon and lime juice complements it well as does gin and bourbon,not to mention vodka. This is much better as a spritzer with club soda than Campari.
