Looking for a delicious Italian dinner delivered to your door? Aperol Spritz, pizza and Postmates are ready to bring you the perfect way to celebrate National Pizza Month. Are you hungry to enjoy this classic Italian pairing?

During warm months, a spritz is many people’s go to cocktail. The simplicity of the cocktail and the refreshing flavor make it a perfect choice. Additionally, the sparkling component seems to make it seem festive.

An Aperol Spritz, simply Aperol and a sparkling wine (and sometimes a sparkling water), is often served as an apertif. The flavors of this simple cocktail tend to waken the palate for the meal ahead.

While this cocktail has become quite popular, some people might be unfamiliar with the Aperol flavors. Lower on the bitterness quality, there is a touch of burnt orange flavor. With a little higher sugar content, the sweetness helps to make the bitter more approachable.

In Italy, an Aperol and pizza are a common Italian dinner. The flavors of the cocktail balance the pizza flavors.

For example, a simple margherita pizza makes for a great pairing. The mozzarella and basil play off the bitter herbs and hint of sweetness. The pairing makes you go back again and again.
