Tip

Enjoyed since the 20’s, the Aperol Spritz hit its stride in North America in the 50’s thanks to an American ad campaign. But it wasn’t until the 21st century that the Aperol Spritz became a worldwide phenomenon, thanks to actress Amanda Rosa Da Silva and a slogan: Happy Spritz, Happer Aperol. Cin Cin (cheers) to a classic!

Tip

Mezcal - like tequila - is a Mexican distilled spirit made from the maguey (agave) plant.

Mezcal is produced using an artisanal method of cooking underground in pits lined with (often volcanic) rock. For that reason, mezcal tastes - and smells - distinctly smoky.
