'Traditions' at Sunday Postcard Art

 'Traditions' at Sunday Postcard Art

The aperitif, colloquially called apero, is literally: a drink served before a meal to whet the appetite. But any occasion is good today to have a drink. The only condition is to drink your aperitif glass after having a toast, as is customary.

Tchin-tchin: Pop, cheers, clink.

You can get everyone together for an aperitif and see the social classes disappear.
For foreigners, he is even a worthy representative of "French savoir vivre",
a savoir vivre practiced by 9 out of 10 French people.

Having a glass of aperitif drink dates back to the Middle Ages. ... In the past, "aperitif" meant anything that opened up the appetite. The word comes from the Latin verb aperire, which means to open. In the Middle Ages therefore, to open the appetite and promote digestion, we consumed a cooked wine flavored with herbs.

  5. Here's some total decadence from you - thank you so much for the aperitif visual. One just has the urge to sit around a fireplace with friends, sharing stories, wine, appetizers and the comfort of 'before'. Lovely!
