With another winter firmly behind us, we've got plenty to look forward to over the next few warmer months. And while we're definitely excited about the longer days, balmy evenings and lingering sunsets that lie ahead, summer also means the return of the al fresco aperitivo. And there's only one thing you should be sipping at those sundowner drinks: the vibrant and delightfully bittersweet Aperol Spritz.

For nine consecutive Sundays from September 11, Burleigh Heads fave Justin Lane joins forces with Aperol to present Casa Aperol x Justin Lane. This Mediterranean oasis on the oceanside spot's rooftop serves up a weekly rotating lineup of live music, bespoke summery cocktails (including ice-cold Aperol Spritzes, of course), Italian-inspired sharing dishes (think Aperol-cured salmon gravlax, natural oysters with Aperol pearls, mushroom arancini with truffle aioli and Aperol sorbet) and Euro vibes aplenty, perfect for soaking up the sea breeze and sunset.

You don't need to book and it's free to enter, so all that's left to you is rounding up your crew and enjoying a Sunday session that'll take you from afternoon to evening.

Fancy really making a day out of it? Between September 11 and October 23, there'll be a lucky draw that gives groups of up to four the chance to experience a luxe, all-inclusive three-hour ride on YOT75, a 75-foot private charter that's part of the Yot Club stable and boasts two full-service bars and four entertaining areas over its two floors. On board, you'll be treated to a spread of Justin Lane's Italian fare and have a front-row seat to the sunset while sipping Aperol Spritzes. There'll also be a DJ spinning tunes to keep the vibes high.

Casa Aperol takes over the Justin Lane rooftop in Burleigh Heads from 2–8pm every Sunday from September 11 to November 6. For more information, head to the website. Can't make it to Casa Aperol? You can still welcome the warmer months with an Aperol Spritz — right now, Aperol is giving away 100,000 of its signature drinks at venues Australia-wide.
