Aperitivo Season in Phuket
Our favorite Italian tradition is the aperitivo, a drink or light meal that takes place at the end of the workday as a warm up to dinner.
The concept of the modern apéritif might have been invented by the distiller Antonio Benedetto Carpano, who also created one of the first types of vermouth in Turin in 1786. The humble aperitivo has come a long way, extending its reach throughout Italy to become a beloved evening ritual. Held during the golden hours of 7 to 9 pm, Italians gather to unwind with a light cocktail or a glass of wine accompanied by delectable finger foods.
