Zero Gradi's Aperol Spritz Gelato Is Your New Go-To Summer Dessert

Summer is here, and so are your cravings for frosty sweet treats and refreshing cold tipples. Stocking up on ice cream and mixing up your chosen cocktail in bulk are what the warmer weather is all about, of course — and so is combining the two.

Adding to the growing list of booze-inspired icy desserts, Zero Gradi has released a new flavour for summer: Aperol spritz gelato. It's exactly what it sounds like, and it's only on offer from the gelateria's Brunswick East store from now until the end of February.

Called Aperol Zero and made in conjunction with Aperol, this Italian flavour mashup blends Zero Gradi's hand-churned gelato with the sweet orange and subtle bitterness that you're oh-so-used to sipping when the temperature heats up. The combo is more about the taste than the booze, however, with each scoop containing less than 0.2 percent alcohol per serve.

Still, if you're keen to eat your favourite beverage rather than merely drink it, then we've found your new go-to summer dessert.

And, if you can't decide between Aperol gelato or frosé sorbet, then you can always add a new kind of crawl to your summer itinerary: a boozy ice cream crawl.

Find Aperol Zero at Zero Gradi, 93-97 Lygon Street, Brunswick East, until February 28.
