A couple years ago I wrote about the various forms Venetian Spritz, that bubbly, ubiquitious snort that you can find at any bar in the city. Looks like that original post is the first thing that pops up in Google when you type the search term "Venetian Spritz, which explains why I've gotten so many emails over the years from people desperately looking for Aperol, the orange flavored apertif that powers perhaps the most popular form of the drink. Alas, I had to tell them the bad news: there's no Aperol distributor in the U.S.
Until now. Just got the word from alert Veniceblog reader, Jordan, who spotted this press release from Skyy Spirits. The long night is over.
