I’m hardly French, but I do appreciate the
time-honored custom of apéro. Appetite-in-
ducing apéritifs and nibbles—alone or con-
necting with friends (RT, please, and power
down that iPhone.)—is a French end-of-
day ritual I think Americans should adopt.
I know I could stand some freaking joie
de vie. You? In Apéritif: Cocktail Hour the
French Way ($19) Rebekah Peppler celebrates
the beauty and simplicity of apéro with a
collection of classic, and some not so
classic, cocktails and bites. A clove spiced
Shot de Rosé or herbaceous vermouth and
sherry Adonis? Don’t mind if I do! Savory
Salmon Rillettes and playful Charcuterie
Cones? Yes, please! Yes, to every entry in this
fantastic little book.
