Stemming from the Latin ‘Aperire’ (to open), the aperitivo (Italian) or aperitif (French) refers to the concept of opening the stomach and stimulating the appetite ahead of a meal. The idea comes from antiquity – most likely from Hippocrates – who would prescribe vinum hippocraticum to patients who suffered from a lack of appetite. This was a concoction of wine mixed with sugar and herbs or spices not unlike Vermouth which is a common alcohol consumed at aperitivo (either neat or mixologised into martinis, negronis or americanos).
