Aperitivo Case, Milan

The word of “aperitivo” is derived from the Latin word “aperire”, meaning “to open”, and it stands for low alcohol beverages that are consumed before dinner. The history of aperitivo starts with Antonio Benedetto Carpano to produce modern Vermut in 1786 and thinking that it would be a more suitable drink for women then wine. This trend became very popular in Italy in 19th century, spread throughout all Europe at the end of the 19th century and then to America. And got its current shape with “happy hour”, the period of time in which Americans serve free/discounted snacks. Advertisements
