Aperol Pistachio Ice Cream Soda

Remember when you were a kid and you were all like “I wonder what these things would taste like if I mix them together…” and then you’d come up with some crazy concoction and make your friends eat it? That’s something I still do. Except I’m way better at it now and I take great care not to make people gag when they taste it.

Genius struck when I was going to town on a pint of pistachio and thought to myself: “Self, that Aperol over there would probably go pretty swell with this pistachio gelato. How could it possibly be bad? I mean they’re both Italian, right?” After all, Pistachio pairs well with rhubarb and citrus, both of which are part of Aperol’s ingredients and flavor profile. I also recall a cocktail from the Kensington Hotel in London that was made with Aperol and dry pistachio.

Well I was right. Guys, I was on a tasty mission and this ice cream soda was it.

  1. Admiring the hard work you put into your website and detailed information you offer. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. This brought back a memory of mixing up the absolute worst food combinations—i.e. ketchup, gummy worms, gold fish and chocolate– and blindfolding friends into tasting it while giggling our butts off. Funny what we find hysterical as little kids. As for the Aperol Ice Cream Soda, I can’t wait to try this! 🙂
