Unbeknown to most, the third Thursday of May is specially reserved for National Aperitif Day. An aperitif is traditionally enjoyed prior to dinner as an appetite-stimulating beverage. Elsewhere it can simply serve as a zesty cocktail. While there needs to be little reason to enjoy an afternoon tipple, May 20 lends a perfect excuse to add a little extra effort.

Enter: Pampelle. For those unacquainted, Pampelle is the world’s first ruby red grapefruit aperitif. Crafted on the banks of the River Charente in the Cognac region of France, Pampelle Grapefruit Aperitif blends the bittersweet essence of grapefruit with natural botanicals, maceration of citrus peels and Eau de Vie – a clear, colourless fruit brandy. The result is fresh and reminiscent of the south of France. Even with border closures, the transformative power of a cocktail will soon have you emulating the Mediterranean lifestyle – oceans apart.
