You can get an Aperol Free completely free at any pub, bar or restaurants when they finally open up next week. 

Yep, you heard right. With Boris Johnson's roadmap out of lockdow (opens in new tab)n underway, restrictions are being lifted to allow non-essential shops (opens in new tab) to open on Monday, along with eateries and places to drink.

It's all going to be outdoor meeting up (opens in new tab) for food and drink for now, with the rule of six (opens in new tab) in place once again for outside picnics and trips to bars, pubs and restaurants.

With the nation's food joints and watering holes having been closed for months due to the third lockdown (opens in new tab), Aperol is offering fans of the orange Aperitivo a real treat for their return to their favourite boozer.

We've had to work on how to make the perfect Aperol Spritz (opens in new tab) at home for the past year as not everyone can afford an Aperol Spritzer tap for their kitchen, so from next week we're in for a treat.

Aperol 70cl - £11 instead of £16 at Amazon
Amazon has blessed those whose summer days aren't complete without an icy Aperol Spritz, offering a very generous deal on full size Aperol bottles. Clink, clink!

How to claim your free Aperol Spritz

Across the nation from 12th April, friends will be able to order two Aperol Spritz for the first time in nearly 100 days at any bar, pub or restaurant in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, and one will be entirely free - because Aperol is treating us.

It's beyond easy to claim your free drink. Just register online here (opens in new tab) by May 17th and you'll receive a confirmation email.

Head out to your favourite pub, bar or restaurant any time between 12th April and 31st August and order two Aperol Spritz - and make sure you keep your receipt!

Redeem by following the link in the confirmation email, and then uploading a photo of their itemised receipt showing the drinks and you'll receive a refund of £8 from Aperol. Generous or what?

Explaining Aperol's decision to pick up the tab for thousands of Brits as they venture back out to the pub, Loris Contro, Aperol UK brand ambassador, said, “Life, like a Spritz, is best served shared. That’s why, after so long apart, we wanted to play our part in bringing people together again, as hospitality venues re-open across the country – with an Aperol Spritz on us.

"We don’t want people to visit bars before they’re comfortable doing so, which is why they can redeem their drink when they’re ready over the summer until 31 August. Each drink represents two people reconnecting and making up for lost time – a joy shared is a joy doubled. Salute!”
