Aperol, the iconic Italian aperitif, has announced a new four-year partnership with Tennis Australia, making it the official drink of the Australian Summer of Tennis. To be fair though, they were already our summer drink of choice so it’s just a bonus that we can now enjoy the classic cocktail while watching some of the biggest names in tennis.
The Australian Open is a huge event, and this year more than ever the focus has been on providing the best food and beverages that the city can offer with a huge new foodie precinct featuring some iconic Melbourne restaurants and cafes.
Happily Aperol is joining in the fun by popping up at a variety of bars and restaurants across Melbourne Park, including the swanky new Bar Atrium with stunning city views.
But the highlight is undoubtedly Terrazza Aperol, a bespoke 15-meter bar located on Grand Slam Oval.
Here, you can soak up the summer sun in style while sipping your Spritz and indulging in delicious Italian aperitivo bites. Think plush lounges, plenty of shady standing room and areas to get away from the crowds for a moment of peace.
Both tennis and the Aperol Spritz are synonymous with summer in Australia, making this the perfect partnership between two icons.
So whether you’re a die-hard tennis fan or simply looking for a stylish way to soak up the summer vibes, be sure to head to the Australian Open and grab yourself an Aperol Spritz. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the season and enjoy a slice of Italian dolce vita.
