1 Shot Wednesday: Aperitivo

Roman aperitivo

Last summer, our traveling group wandered through Roman side streets all afternoon. Working up a good appetite, a few of us sampled the food and drink alfresco-style. Add fun conversations about Rome and its culture–it’s easy to trigger the pleasurable memory whenever I see this picture. It took two hours to nibble away this platter.

Aperol Spritz, grilled vegetables, honey, Prosciutto, Salami, olive and artichoke spreads, cheeses, and Bruschetta.

Salute!

    1. It was as tasty as it looked. I remember your love for Paris. You’d feel that way about Rome. That cobblestoned streets and warm vibe with bridges and history and romance and vino and food. Just sitting and watching the environment is so much fun.

    1. Twas. The older I get, the more I learn to appreciate the culture and food and drink. I was in Rome in 2005 for the first time and didn’t appreciate it nearly as much as last summer. The upside of growing old, I think.

  11. You might enjoy this as a film fan (and I’m guessing a fan of Italy?) – I just started an Italian film podcast, CINEMA ITALIANO. We’ve got two episodes up and plan to do at least one episode per month, hopefully more!
