Aperol Spritz aperitif party in the pjazza 14/08/2017

Aperol Spritz aperitif party in the pjazza

For two afternoons in July, Pjazza Sant’Anna in Sliema was transformed into a vibrantly orange party with live entertainment, delicious finger food, gorgeous prizes and refreshing Aperol Spritz drinks. Shoppers, passersby and tourists were invited to join in the fun at the first Aperol Spritz Aperitif party.

The colour orange was everywhere, representing the distinctive colour and spirit of the drink. Beautiful rows of upside down orange umbrellas created a shade from the afternoon sun, while striped deck chairs, soft cushions and Aperol Spritz hostesses were all in orange.

“Our first Pjazza Aperol Spritz aperitif party was a great experience. We wanted to give people a social and light-hearted occasion to remember. The sparkling refreshing flavour, the low alcohol and bright orange content, make Aperol Spritz the perfect drink that replicates the Italian lifestyle in Malta from the aperitif hour to an evening in the piazza,” said Claudia Attard, Aperol Brand Executive at Farsons Beverage Imports Company (FBIC) Limited.

Live music was provided by guitarist Mark Rapa and Antonio on Thursday while Kiko and Emma Muscat played on Friday. Giorgio’s Cafeteria provided free finger food while San Carlo crisps were handed out.  Patrons had a chance to try their luck at the Wheel of Fortune as winners received handsome prizes.

Aperol Spritz is one of the most widely consumed cocktails in Italy and is fast becoming a cult drink in Malta. It is made by mixing Aperol with Prosecco and a splash of soda, topping it up with a slice of orange: light in alcohol, sparkling and refreshing, it’s the ideal drink for every occasion. It can be enjoyed before a meal, whether that is lunch, as a real Italian aperitif before dinner, or simply as a lighter option at an after-work get-together with colleagues and friends.

Aperol is imported, marketed and distributed by FBIC Limited, a member of the Farsons Group.
