Let us remember that drinking is not a sin. If someone wants to whet their appetite before their meal, it is not disagreeable. He or she can order aperitifs. Many people instantly jump for beer and vodka due to lack of other options, but you can give yourself an opportunity to explore something fresh.  

Here you’ll find a few options for aperitifs- 

If you are throwing a birthday bash, champagne is the ideal way to start the meal. However, you don’t have to go for anything too steeply-priced when you are out for a lazy brunch. The most agreeable aperitif is dry sparkling wine such as prosecco. If you are looking for the sweeter wines, just remember that it may actually spoil your appetite. Go for the sparkling wine, as it is one of the popular choices that will easily impress your guests. For young adults, you can choose spritz which is prosecco mixed with aperol. That is because inspite of the dry style of prosecco, the fruity flavours of rhubarb, herbs, and quina are quite delicious. Alternatively, opt for bellini — a cocktail made with prosecco mixed with peach puree.  

Perhaps you are out in the evening, and want to drink without resorting to typical hard liquor. Another amazing option you can choose is vermouth, which is a type of fortified wine. In other words, fortified wine is blended with brandy. Once you have had the most appealing Vermouth called Cambery from Savoy, notably dry and delicate, you may be hooked! 

During special occasions, we highly recommend amontillado which is a sherry wine. It is very tempting to someone who loves alcohol, yet it can be on the pricy end so many people don’t usually open it just for any occasion. Like all aperitifs, it can be served along with the meal or dessert, too.  

Drinking aperitif can make your mood better. You’ll be savouring your food when it arrives. Drink safely!
