The most apt dates to go on the Aperol #JoinTheJoy trail include 2nd to 3rd July and 9th to 10th July. Tickets can be purchased here.
At the risk of sounding negative, the Aperol spritz is a drink nobody can mess up because when it boils down to it, it’s really just a mixture of Aperol, prosecco, and a splash of soda added to a glass with ice and a slice of orange. This simplicity, however — summer, sunshine, and no need for dexterity if you’re making your own at home — means that Aperol’s #JoinTheJoy bar crawl itself makes drinking the aperitif almost imperative.
Come the first two weekends of July, the bar crawl — go solo, in a group, or just make friends along the way — spans itself across four key districts and if you’re somehow concerned about the calories, a spritz usually rounds itself up to 158 which is much lower than sangria or margaritas. Keep scrolling below for a quick guide on the event.
