Much more festive, less time-consuming and more convivial than a normal meal, aperitifs have a lot going for them. Aperitifs have quickly become the new trend among young and old alike. Aperitifs are the perfect way to combine an aperitif with an evening meal. These days, however, the codes for aperitifs have changed. Today, it would be tasteless to settle for a packet of crisps and a bowl of peanuts. Nowadays, guests prefer a varied table. We prefer to offer products that are full of colour and flavour, such as cold meats, cheese, olives and vegetables. The aperitif also leaves plenty of room for local products, but in modernised and revisited versions. These days, however, the codes for aperitifs have changed.

We’ll tell you all about it in the rest of this article. Steps to a successful aperitif : 1: Choose the products you want for your aperitif It wouldn’t be a good aperitif if you didn’t have the products you crave. But there’s something for everyone, so you can choose between toasts with local products such as pâté, cheese and tapenade. The must-haves for the aperitif will continue to be charcuterie and cheese, not forgetting crisps and peanuts for the younger ones (even if, as evolved people, we like our aperitifs a little more elaborate, we all know that crisps and peanuts remind us of our childhood and we never say no). 2: It’s all about presentation For a successful aperitif, it’s all about the right crockery. So to impress your guests, pull out all the stops! Cristal d’Arques Paris has the glassware you need for this convivial occasion, and Luminarc has the tableware to match! For a chic and classy aperitif, the Pampille black collection will be perfect, or the Diwali Marble granite collection for a relaxed atmosphere. 3: The little extra Want to go the extra mile to impress your guests?Then choose a themed evening, match the dishes, table linen and decorations. You can even go so far as to choose the lighting and music to get totally into the mood. And to add an extra touch of fun and go the extra mile, dress to match! If you’re planning a festive aperitif but don’t have the time to prepare everything, the aperitif box is the solution: What is the boit’apéro? In 2016, boit’Apéro launched its concept of surprise aperitif boxes for everyone to enjoy. The concept of the aperitif box is simple: each month you receive a surprise aperitif box depending on the package you choose. You’ll discover a delicious drink accompanied by delicacies and an original playlist. Their priority is to offer you a box with the taste and original flavours of products from small producers, for a moment of pleasure and discovery with friends or family. There are several options for choosing the number of boxes you receive. You can even make gift cards for your friends and family who love aperitifs, so that they’re sure to enjoy themselves and get twice as many surprises.
