February 9th is National Pizza Day. It’s a day where everyone can savor and enjoy the culinary tradition of pizza. Plus, with Mardi Gras and Carnivale being canceled this year due to COVID-19, National Pizza Day is the perfect way to have your own little celebration! Make your own, order out, get delivery, and pair it with pizza’s official cocktail, the Aperol spritz.
To celebrate, Aperol teamed up with Passport to bring you the official spritz recipe, and they’ve also created a way for you to help donate to charity…without spending a penny! Between now and Pi Day (March 14th) Aperol will donate $3.14 (get it?) to Another Round, Another Rally every time someone shares @AperolUSA and #AperolLovesPizza on Instagram. Another Round, Another Rally is a nonprofit that’s providing resources and financial assistance to members of the hospitality community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
So, celebrate by helping a worthy cause, making a fabulous pizza, and treating yourself by crafting the perfect Aperol spritz every time. Here’s how it’s done:
