We have waited so long for summer to finally come and we are determined to do everything.
And thanks to Aperol’s team with the picnic basket company Pique, we can.
So what’s in the Aperol Spritz cocktail basket?
First things first, food!
The baskets offer Italian-inspired staples to share.
Dine on saffron arancini with a herb aioli dip and fresh salads made from ham, melon, rocket and burrata with baby plum tomatoes, roasted pine nuts and micro-basil.
The menu also includes spicy sausage rolls, olives and freshly baked ciabatta.

There is also a vegetarian option where the meaty dishes are exchanged for delicious vegetarian dishes.
We’re definitely not going to share the biting tomato and gorgonzola pizzas!
The whole thing is rounded off with a piece of lemon polenta cake.
The handcrafted baskets also contain the brand new portable Aperol spritz kit.
It contains a 35cl bottle of Aperol and Cinzano Prosecco, which means that an Aperol Spritz on the go has never been easier.
They even threw in two Aperol Spritz cups, soda water, and the classic fresh orange slice to garnish.
Where do I get the Aperol basket from?
You can order the basket online Here from May 29th.
It costs £ 65 for two and can be delivered nationwide until supplies last.
