The Italian aperitif drink is much more than a simple moment you take to have a drink: it is a real ritual! In this article, we reveal 5 excellent Italian drinks ready to serve in your supermarket abroad or in your bar, wherever you are.
When we talk about an Italian aperitif we are referring to a pause, a pre-lunch or pre-dinner break, a moment of conviviality to spend with friends, family, work colleagues. An opportunity to taste some snacks, drink something good and… whet the appetite. A real ritual that we Italians can hardly give up, just like that of espresso coffee in the morning.
In recent years, the Italian aperitif has evolved: snacks got more sought after, almost always prepared using genuine and local ingredients. Enjoying an aperitif has become synonymous with good living and Italian style, two things that the whole world appreciates.
A winning formula that, as such, is also spreading abroad. Even the drink that accompanies the aperitif has changed, following the latest made-in-Italy trends. Spritz and Prosecco are almost inseparable companions of the Italian aperitif, because they are good, low in alcohol, refreshing and… trendy! But also light cocktails, fruit centrifuges…
And then there are them: the drinks that never go out of fashion because they have always been linked to the ritual of the Italian aperitif. And that’s just what we talk about in this article. By reading it, you will discover why they should not be missing on the shelves of your supermarket abroad or on your bar menu.
Our first proposal concerns an authentic icon of the Italian aperitif: Campari Soda. Its history dates back to 1932, when Davide Campari had a double intuition: to industrially distribute his drink based on Bitter Campari and seltzer; to have the bottle designed (cone-shaped and without a label, identical to how it still is today) by the futurist artist Fortunato Depero. Since then, Campari Soda has been the aperitif of Italian families. Not only that: the brand is also known abroad and we receive many orders from wholesalers and retailers from all over Europe. Beautiful, gorgeous is the look of the 10 cl bottle. Original, retro, and modern at the same time, it “tells” us about the dolce vita. And the taste of Campari Soda is always unique, ideal to accompany the real Italian aperitif. With a low alcohol content (10% vol.).

Spritz is the drink that has made the Italian aperitif even cooler in the world. This cocktail, although so modern, dates back to the early nineteenth century, when some soldiers in Veneto got into the habit of adding sparkling water and seltzer to white wine. To make a spritz, simply mix Prosecco Doc and Aperol in equal parts, then add a pinch of soda and a slice of orange. If, on the other hand, you want your customers to find an excellent ready-made spritz on the shelves of your supermarket, choose Aperol Spritz. It is available in nice 17.5 cl single-dose bottles with easy-open cap, distributed in clusters of 3 pieces, and has an alcohol content of 11 degrees. To have it ready, you just have to add ice!

Crodino in Italy is known as the “non-alcoholic blonde that drives the world crazy” (a famous slogan). It’s ideal for a tasty, Italian aperitif without alcohol. Its recipe based on spices, herbs, and roots coming from the most remote places on the planet was born in 1965 and still remains secret today. What is certain, however, is the pleasant, sparkling taste, which leaves an excellent flavor of citrus and spices on the palate. Crodino is in great demand by our customers from all over Europe, and some months ago we have also started exporting it to other continents. A sign that the true Italian aperitif knows no bounds, indeed, it is spreading more and more around the world. Crodino is available in a cluster containing 10 bottles of 10 cl each.

B.S. is the acronym for Bitter Salfa, a historic Bolognese brand specialized in the production of drinks for “mixology experts”, both at home and at the bar. The current owner of the brand, the Conserve Italia group, is relaunching it through a program of restyling and expansion of the range. Here, then, is our fourth proposal for an excellent Italian aperitif: B.S. Ginger. It is beautiful to look at, in the classic 10 cl bottle with the retro-style logo, and it will certainly not go unnoticed on the shelves of your sales point. It is good to taste, thanks to the fresh and sparkling flavor with the pleasant aftertaste of ginger. Finally, it is ideal for mixing, to create excellent cocktails. But the real strength of this product is an excellent value for money. This is why we receive full pallet orders from our customers across Europe.

Our fifth and last proposal among the 5 best drinks for a true Italian aperitif is Sanpellegrino Cocktail. It is a sparkling and lively drink, with 100% made in Italy ingredients, known and appreciated even outside the borders of Dante’s birthplace. The Sanpellegrino Cocktail stands out for its slightly bitter taste, which makes it ideal for whetting the palate during a morning break, a happy hour, or a pre-dinner. It is available in different formats, but the one most requested by our customers is the nice 20 cl bottle in clusters of 6 units. The strength of the Sanpellegrino brand and the fresh and cheerful image of the product are the added value that will convince your customers to choose the Cocktail from the shelf. You can offer it in promotion by taking advantage of the extraordinary offer we have prepared.
