Aperol and Campari are both aperitifs, meaning they are designed to be drunk before a meal in order to stimulate the appetite. They are both bitter, citrus-y liqueurs that are popular in cocktails, particularly the Spritz.
So, does Aperol taste like Campari? The answer is yes and no. Both Aperol and Campari are made with a mix of herbs and spices, including orange peel, rhubarb, and gentian root. This gives them their characteristic bitterness and bright orange color.
However, there are some key differences between the two aperitifs. Aperol is less alcoholic than Campari, meaning it is less likely to make you drunk. It is also a touch sweeter than Campari, which some people find more palatable.
Ultimately, it comes down to personal taste. If you like a bit of a kick in your cocktails, then Campari is the aperitif for you. But if you’re looking for something a little gentler, Aperol is a great option.
