Originally published in 2012 the Aperol spritz is barely becoming cool with the Manhattan cognoscenti and still a few years away from hipster hell… get to know it and love it;
THE Young / Modern Gentleman proves his savvy by simple and cunning ways; an area that is most associated with a Gentleman’s ability is the wet-bar. Every Gentleman should have one or two things on his sleeve that make him standout from his peers. We present the aperitif; a light and refreshing mid-afternoon drink meant to titillate the palate and make everyone… well, happy.
