Aperol-ivery returns: Brighten up the January Blues with two orange Aperol Spritz delivered to your door
London, 10th January 2019: To help Brits combat the January blues with a splash of orange, Aperol – Italy’s iconic orange bittersweet aperitif, which celebrates its 100th Anniversary later this year – has announced the return of Aperol-ivery, its free, doorstep Aperol Spritz delivery service, for four days only.
Aperol-ivery will be kicking off on ‘Blue Monday’ (21 January 2019) for two days in London before continuing to two further cities – Brighton and Bristol – on 23rd and 24th January 2019, to help Brits brighten up the dark January evenings in true Italian style. You can enter for your chance to win a free Aperol-ivery from today at www.aperolivery.com. Full T&Cs follow at close of press release.
So, what is an Aperol-ivery? An Italian Aperol bartender will arrive at your front door to make two refreshing, perfectly crafted Aperol Spritz for you and a friend, to help you start your evening with a spontaneous aperitivo drink. Served from Aperol’s vibrant ‘Aperol orange’ Aperitivo Van, Aperol-ivery offers the perfect chance to add a touch of vibrant orange to a ‘blue’ January and enjoy the taste of Italy’s favourite aperitivo at home, completely free of charge. Salute!
With Blue Monday (21 January 2019) named as the gloomiest day of the year – because of a combination factors including low bank balances, the end of the Christmas period and the weather – the return of Aperol-ivery is the perfect excuse to inject some much-needed optimism and spontaneity by inviting a friend over to begin your evening with an Aperol Spritz. Boasting a lower ABV than many other cocktails, what better way to inject some light into the dark January evenings than with a hand-delivered Aperol Spritz?
Paolo Tonellotto, Aperol Brand Ambassador and Bar Owner says, “I’ve always seen January as the perfect time to catch up with friends after the very busy Christmas time. To me the ‘aperitivo’ culture in Italy is a great way to do this, a couple of drinks, a few snacks and some great company to share them with. In Italy, ‘aperitivo’ is an everyday occurrence all year round – which, of course, always starts with an Aperol Spritz.”
The Aperol-ivery service will call at winning London addresses on Monday 21st and 22nd January, before calling at two further cities across the UK:
- Brighton (Weds 23rd January)
- Bristol (Thursday 24th January)
All deliveries will be made between 16:00 – 22:00.
How do you apply to win this sociable start to your evening? Simply apply for your Aperol-ivery at www.aperolivery.com to be in with a chance to receive a special delivery and enjoy the contagious Italian fun of an Aperol Spritz, brought to your doorstep. Buona fortuna! Please note that this offer is limited to one drink per person, T&Cs apply - please see below for further details.
For those not lucky enough to be selected for an Aperol-ivery, the simplicity of the serve makes it easy to recreate yourself with friends. Simply follow the 50:50 recipe to create the perfect Aperol Spritz at home:
- Fill a large wine glass with ice
- Combine prosecco followed by Aperol in equal parts
- Add a splash of soda
- Garnish with an orange slice
Throughout 2019, with the brand celebrating its 100th anniversary later this year, we will be encouraging even more Aperol fans to start their evening with an Aperol Spritz. Look out for our series of Aperol Spritz Socials and nationwide events, coming soon.
