The love for Aperol Spritz in Kyiv can be easily compared to the way Italians treat this drink. It's one of the most popular cocktails, served at the most fashionable restaurants in Kyiv and it’s a perfect summer drink. «Destinations» brings you the list of recommended bars and restaurants to have this fashionable Italian aperitif.
Aperol Spritz, an aperitif of Italian origin, is threatening to relegate the gin and tonic to second place as an after-work tipple and overtake the classic vermouth as a pre-lunch aperitif at weekends. Its exotic orange colour and sweet taste with just a hint of bitterness are two of the weapons in its armoury. It's made by combining Aperol and cava (or 'prosecco' or white wine) and adding a dash of soda. It has a light taste and it's the ideal companion for tapas.
