We want to celebrate the arrival of Friday evening with this class, why not right? Wanna know where the famous Spritz comes from? Den would know, she was born there! What a better way than to experience this italian tradition with a local.

 

The experience of aperitivo is a cultural ritual in Italy, an Aperitivo is a pre-meal drink meant to awaken your appetite, it happens usually in that blissful moment between the end of work and the beginning of dinner. It is a time to switch-off from work obligations and start to enjoy your personal time, perfect to catch up with friends, enjoy some tasty treats together with a cocktail.
