Lifestyle: Aperol Spritz Comes To Manchester

I always remember the first time I tried Aperol. It was around two years ago, and Aperol came to Manchester’s super cool Spinningfields with a pop up tent, serving up the ice cold drink with it’s bright orange colour. I remember enjoying a glass with a couple of friends, all of us feeling rather trendy on what had been a really hot day, sipping this fashionable orange drink.

Just as it’s orange colour is quite unique for a drink, it’s taste is also one of a kind too. Think of bitter and sweet oranges muddled with herbs and a bit of a ‘tang’ – it’s so delicious and perfect for Summer. If you haven’t had the chance to experience the drink yourself yet, then the perfect opportunity is coming up!

Aperol will be touring it’s pop-up bar across a number of locations across the country, helping to get summer underway with an Aperol Spritz. The bar will be visiting London, Manchester, Bristol and Brighton between May and August, providing a great night for everyone who wants to come down. There will be music, Aperol Spritz, an Instaprint booth and lots of other surprises! An Aperol Spritz is the ideal drink for starting the evening and for any social occasion. It can be enjoyed before dinner as a true Italian aperitif, as a lighter option at an after-work get-together or combined with food. To make the perfect Aperol Spritz is really easy: just fill a wine glass with ice and pour in 3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol and 1 dash of soda water, then just garnish with a slice of fresh orange.

I was delighted to jump on board with Aperol Spritz and partner up with the drink brand for the Manchester event, coming to Albert Square from 4-6 June. As part of the event, Aperol Spritz will be running a ‘social playlist’, which will be an hour’s worth of music that is requested solely by  fans on Twitter.  In preparation for myself attending the event, I have curated a #ItStartsNow Aperol inspired playlist over on Spotify, which features 5 of my top Summer songs. In case you want to now what these songs are to get into a Summer mood, take a look below:

1. Leon On- Major Lazer
2. New York Raining – Rita Ora and Charles Hamilton
3. All Cried Out – Blonde and Alex Newell
4. Higher – Sigma and Labyrinth
5. Together – Ella Eyreaperol-spritz
All 5 tracks instantly perk me up and make me think of fun and care-free Summer days. I also can’t keep still when I hear the introductions, I just start dancing! Take a look at my Spotify playlist here– the playlist will be growing

I’ll be appearing at the Manchester event with Aperol Spritz, seeing which songs you guys want playing and joining in all the Aperol-inspired fun. If you are in the area, why not come down and join in too?
