Throughout the month of August, London venue The Gun is treating oranges as cash at its Aperol Spritz pop-up.

Customers who pay a visit to The Spritz Shack and present bar staff with an orange, which represents the brand's signature colour, will receive a free glass of the Italian apertif.

The promotion forms part of what the venue has coined its ‘Orange Amnesty’ offering.

Apart from Aperol Spritz-based beverages, the bar offers a range of other cocktails, English summer cups and beer and wine, which are placed in wheelbarrows located around the venue.  

The space includes a market stall that serves snack food including quiches, sausage rolls and cakes, as well as a picnic-themed offering complete with homemade sandwiches, salads and cold meats.

The orange-themed outdoor space, which took up residency at the venue’s outdoor space in May, is also available to hire for 30 to 250 people. 

Aperol Spritz concluded its 2015 summer social series at Canary Wharf last week (5-7 August), which it launched with a secret bus tour in May.
