Aperol Spritz Guinness World Record

By / Wine + Drinks / July 4th, 2012 / 1


On June 29th thousands descended on the iconic Piazza San Marco in Venice for Aperol Spritz! Happy Record! to attempt the Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest Aperol Spritz Celebration’. 2,657 people joined in the social spirit of Aperol Spritz eager to clink their glasses and make history. The successful setting of the new record was officially announced at 19:45 CET and was overseen by a team of local judges from Guinness World Records.

With all attendees dressed in orange T-shirts, they filled up Piazza San Marco and stood in the formation of an Aperol Spritz glass as they took their positions for the ‘Largest Aperol Spritz Celebration’ representing the distinctive colour and spirit of the drink. The sparkling refreshing flavour, the low alcohol content and bright orange colour, make it the perfect drink that evokes the Italian lifestyle, from the aperitif hour to an evening in the piazza.

To enjoy your own Aperol Spritz just get a tumbler or large balloon glass and follow the simple instructions. It’s as easy as 3, 2, 1:

· 3 parts of Prosecco
· 2 parts of Aperol
· 1 dash of Club soda
· Ice and a slice of orange

Add ice and a slice of orange, pour in the Prosecco, the Aperol and add a dash of soda. Then sit back, relax and enjoy a great drink with great friends.
