Davio’s Aperitif Mondays

Aperitif Mondays: Enjoy Spritz Cocktails at Davio’s Manhattan

Typically Monday is the least liked day of the week. You’ve most likely heard the phrase “someone has a case of the Mondays”, but those saying it are not referring to anything enjoyable. What if we told you we know of a way to make your Mondays a deliciously enjoyable day? Davio’s Manhattan presents Aperitif Mondays, a wonderful happy hour experience of delicious spritz cocktails.

Davio’s Aperitif Mondays

Every Monday, Davio’s Manhattan boasts a Happy Hour menu from 2:30 PM – 7:00 PM featuring libations made with Italian apéritifs, Aperol and Pallini Limoncello. The Happy Hour is dedicated to the classic Spritz cocktails, which are designed to take you from day to night. Aperol is an Italian apéritif made of gentian, rhubarb, and cinchona, along with a few other herbs and roots. Pallini Limoncello is a traditional Italian lemon-flavored liqueur made from Sfusato lemons.

If you didn’t already know, Spritz cocktails are the ultimate summer drinks. It is a simple cocktail with only three ingredients. The Spritz is a sparkling, low-alcohol quencher that is easy to make and quite delicious. Along with the delicious Spritzes, you can also enjoy some incredible complimentary eats at Davio’s Manhattan’s Aperitif Mondays. We had the pleasure of sampling a variety of bar bites, including Truffle Fries, Fresh Tomato Pizza with Mozzarella and Basil Leaves, and Crispy Fried Calamari. 

For dessert, we enjoyed mouth-watering blueberry frosted Donuts and some must-try Aperol Cotton Candy.

The full happy hour menu, with prices, includes the following:

$7 Aperol Spritz

$7 Limoncello Spritz

$6 Select Red and White Wines

$6 Prosecco

$6 Seasonal Beer

Complimentary Bar Bites

If you are looking for refuge from your Monday blues, Aperitif Mondays at Davio’s Manhattan is the place to be.  After one visit, Mondays will no longer be your least favorite day of the week. Davio’s Manhattan is located at 447 Lexington Avenue. Happy Spritzing!

Aperol Aperitif Kicks Off Spritz Season at Eataly

We’re having some difficulty keeping up with all the summer rooftop parties we’re invited to, not that we’re complaining. With all the sadness happening in the world, we’ll happily indulge in a little fun escape. We were invited by Aperol Aperitif to kick off summer and the Spritz cocktail season at Eataly’s rooftop pop-up, Sabbia. We had quite a lovely time enjoying a few delicious Aperol Aperitif Spritz cocktails, and some wonderful bites. For those who don’t know, Aperol is the perfect Italian aperitif, thanks to unique taste made of a brilliant mix of herbs and roots (some of which include bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb, chinchona, and others), and its reduced alcohol content.

Attendees of the event were treated to cool Aperol swag, such as t-shirts, sunnies, caps, and even ties to compliment the Italian aperitif. Along with passed around cocktails, the event also boasted two Spritz cocktail stations and a station to add your own cocktail garnishes, featuring Joe Campanale, Beverage Director and Co-Owner dell’anima, L’Artusi, Anfora, and L’Apicio. If you want to know how to create the perfect Spritz cocktail at home, just remember 3, 2, 1! That’s 3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol Aperitif, and 1 part soda. You can’t go wrong with this easy recipe.
