I recently hosted an aperitivo hour with some friends and put together the perfect menu. There are A LOT of things I love about Italy and the Italian lifestyle, but aperitivo hour is at the very top of my list! And I’m bringing La Dolce Vita home with a cocktail and food pairing in this reel that was perfect for summer hosting! This was our way of bringing a slice of Italy home with us!
