You may not be sprawled out on a beach in Capri this summer, but with an Aperol spritz in hand it’s pretty easy to pretend. The Instagram-able beverage is a perfect blend of bitter and sweet and the drinkable anthem of a warm sunny day.
The Henry has debuted its tasty take on the summer drink on its new Summertime Spritz menu which includes four spritzes: Grapefruit, Butterfly Plum, Strawberry, and Jane’s Aperol Spritz, a more classic take on the beverage.
“The Aperol spritz is a classic aperitif cocktail; it’s a little lower in alcohol, just enough to get you going on your evening,” says Mat Snapp, beverage director of Sam Fox’s restaurants.Mat Snapp, Beverage Director, Sam Fox Restaurants
