An aperitif is a drink for dinner
An aperitif is usually an alcoholic beverage, but it does not have to be. The word aperitif comes from the Latin ' aperire ' which means as much as opening. The opening comes mainly from a glass of wine, or in some cases a beer bottle. An aperitif is to stimulate the spijsertering and saliva production. An aperitif usually works appetite-inducing, especially when it concerns a fortified wine with a high alcohol percentage and low sugar. It is not recommended to eat a sweet aperitif: this inhibits the appetite and weakens the taste. An aperitif also serves as a starting point, and means to open the affection between the guests.
