    Thanks for posting this. I love the category for all its variation and tradition. That said, I have to say that the suggested servings and descriptions don't make much sense. I just made all of them to test.

    Peychaud's Aperitivo, a very sweet low AbV aperitivo liqueur, in a Boulevardier, which is defined by the gentian dryness of a higher ABV bitter? Cappeletti, one of the sweetest Americano wines out there (not even the same category as the rest, which are liqueurs), as a 'less sweet' Negroni'? The Aperitivo Select brand ambassador's opinion that a spritz is not a spritz without olives, when a spritz is traditionally a regionally variable drink with white wine and soda, and no liqueur at all?

    Did your team try all these branded ideas before putting them in the article? Most of them don't make for great cocktails.

    Wow - this article was *ridiculously* useful! I totally fell in love with Select when I visited Venice a few years back, but I didn't think you could get it anywhere outside Venice, as I didn't see anything in trying to google it. Turns out I should have been googling better, cause you totally can. (Though still, from what I gather, it's cost-prohibitive to ship from the US, as the only importer I found was UK-based... still, good to know - 40 bucks for shipping is still much cheaper than a flight to Venice. :D)
