Santé! The apéritif is back. Forget the crass cocktail – the chic apéritif is the choice of the discerning drinker. From the Latin aperire (‘to open’), an apéritif not only kick-starts the palate before eating but is the most delightful way to begin an evening.

More and more people are falling for the charms of this light, refreshing and aromatic way of drinking, and bars dedicated to apéritifs are opening around the world. Characterised by their dryness, freshness and bitter flavours, many apéritifs are also low in alcohol, making them a perfect choice for health-conscious barflies.
