    Aperitif, anyone? Spirits firms chase cocktail for growth

    MILAN/LONDON (Reuters) - Drinks companies are converging on an unusual cocktail recipe: less alcohol. In bars from London to New York, sales of "aperitifs" such as Aperol, Lillet and Martini Rosso are growing rapidly as younger drinkers in particular opt for lower-alcohol concoctions over stronger traditional cocktail spirits like vodka. As a result companies such as Italy's Campari (CPRI.MI), Britain's Diageo (DGE.L) and France's Pernod Ricard (PERP.PA) are snapping up aperitif brands or launching new marketing drives for existing ones.
