It’s hard to believe that summer is only a few weeks away. And while it’s been a cold and wet spring, we can cling on to the hope that the new season will bring on warmer weather and sun-drenched days. To celebrate the start of summer, Gigi’s Gelato is giving away free scoops of Aperol Spritz sorbet. Be one of the first people to arrive in store on Thursday December 1 from 7pm for your complimentary scoop.
A scoop of Aperol Sprtiz sorbet from this gelateria in Yarraville will whisk you away to an Italian summer. Co-owner chef Luigi ‘Gigi’ Pozzoli was born and raised in Milan, and learned his craft from award-winning gelato maestros. All of the gelato is made from scratch in the kitchen, with high quality ingredients to create pure and intense flavours. Both Gigi and co-owner Sue Yong chose the flavour of Aperol Spritz as a nod to Gigi’s roots in northern Italy.
“An Italian summer is incomplete without Aperol, so we’ve decided to introduce this as a limited-edition summer flavour,” said Gigi. “Our take on the summer classic combines Aperol, Prosecco and fresh oranges.”
Most of the flavours at Gigi’s Gelato change every day, however, the new Aperol Spritz sorbet will be available every week for the next month.
This store opened in Yarraville in March 2022, which means this will be their first summer open. This husband and wife team moved to Melbourne in order to open their dream gelateria, and the giveaway will celebrate the start of summer and peak gelato season.
To score your free scoop, head to Gigi’s Gelato in Yarraville on December 1, from 7pm, and try to be one of the first 100 people. This giveaway is limited to one scoop per person.
