Move over rosé - Aperol is here

Whilst it might all be about those millennial pink drinks right now that doesn’t mean we should overlook rose’s orange-hued Italian cousin. Aperol is the drink of summer, with its low-alcohol content, instagrammable colour and refreshing citrus flavour, it’s the perfect all-day sipper.
