Cervina, Italy to be precise.
It's not usually the source for wine research, but Charlie The Wine is enjoying some great winter skiing in the Italian Alps.
Staying at the delightful Hotel Perruquet situated on the main street in Cervinia, we have been enjoying an aprês ski drink or two. The drink to be seen with is the Aperol Spritz.
Highly recommended by chic Italians is the aperitif Aperol Spritz, great for the digestion but even greater when you add some fizz. Simply mix 2 parts Aperol, 3 parts finest Italian Prosecco, 1 part Soda finished off with with lots of ice. Wonderful!
- 2 parts Aperol
- 3 parts Prosecco
- 1 part Soda
We highly recommend Hotel Perruquet if you are looking for great skiing on a budget. Run by the sister and brother team Silvana and Franco their courteous service is impeccable making all guests very welcome.
It just shows that you don't always have to pay through the nose for great service.
So with the ski room right opposite the main ski lifts which offer expansive skiing in the Breuil Cervina and through to Zermatt, Hotel Perruquet plus Aperol Spritz is a perfect combination!
