If ever there was a drink made for summer, it's Aperol Spritz. There’s no denying that this refreshingly bitter cocktail is the quickest way to brighten a summer afternoon or a balmy evening. Here at Remix HQ we’re partial to an Aperol Spritz or two on a hot, sunny day (or a wet, rainy one if last year’s Remix x Aperol Spritz evening was anything to go by!) so we were super excited to find out that a Tuscan-inspired oasis is opening on The Deck at Ostro this month. Not only that, but it opens on the 14th February – now that’s amore! Sorry. We had to.
This Italian-inspired terrazzo will come to life with orange trees, platters, a sparkling fountain and of course, everyone’s favourite aperitif. Set to be a popular pop-up, the Italian Garden will be open for just 30 days, from 5pm – 9pm, on Wednesday – Saturday. To nab a spot in the sun to sip your Spritz, be sure to book ahead with an Aperol Experience, available here. Your ticket includes a demonstration on how to make the perfect Aperol Spritz, a tasting platter and of course, the drink du jour!
To get amongst the Aperol action even earlier, try your luck at winning a ticket to the opening night of the Aperol Garden …. Willy Wonka style! There are 100 tickets to the opening of the Aperol Garden on Tuesday 13th February, hidden in Aperol Chocolate Bars. Simply purchase an Aperol Spritz at Ostro to receive a chocolate bar and unwrap your way to a winning ticket! For more information, head over to seafarers.co.nz
