A new, limited edition, ‘Aperol Chickz’ burger from Fat Hippo at Great Northern Warehouse has launched today, available until Monday 29th August.

A one-of-a-kind special, the Aperol Chickz Burger (£13.50) includes buttermilk chicken, seeded brioche, parmesan crunch, gem lettuce, cheesy garlic bacon crumb, creamy Caesar dressing and an Aperol hot honey butter, all served with seasoned fries.

First invented in the 1950s, Aperol Spritz’s iconic bittersweet taste was created as the perfect pre-dinner drink to prepare the palette. In more recent years, the Italian aperitif has seen a resurgence in popularity as the quintessential summer cocktail. Embracing the popularity of the cult cocktail, Fat Hippo decided to make it the star of their limited-edition burger this August.

With an Italian summer theme in mind, diners can upgrade their burger with Caesar Fries (£1.50) loaded with Caesar dressing and a cheesy garlic bacon crumb.

Managing Director and founder of Fat Hippo, Mike Phillips, spoke of the collaboration, “We’re big fans of an Aperol Spritz so when it came to thinking of a new special to celebrate the summer, this was a no-brainer. Inspired by classic Italian dishes our chefs have been busy experimenting with the bittersweet flavours of Aperol and the end result promises to take this iconic summer drink to the next level.”
