Blog: Olly WehringAperol Spritz - Just the one. A large one?

Olly Wehring | 12 May 2016

I'll admit to being partial to an Aperol Spritz now and again, more usually in the summer months, sitting outside, shades on, slowly turning more golden/rusty.

Like cider, though, a couple is my limit. Any more, and I start to crave something a little less... bubbly.

One is perfect, though. But, not a large one. Like this.

Say hello to the world's largest Aperol Spritz, verified by Guinness World Records. Created onboard the Costa Favolosa cruise ship this week, the 1.5m-high tumbler contains 500 litres of Prosecco, 333 litres of Aperol, 167 litres of soda water and 15 ice-cubes, each of which measured 18cm x 20cm.

The tagline for this? How about "You'll fall to bits, if you drink all of this Spritz."
