An aperitif is a before-dinner drink meant to stimulate the appetite. The term originates from the Latin word, ‘apertitiuvum indicating ‘opener.’ In France, it is pronounced aperitif, and in Italy, aperitivo.

A digestif is a beverage served at the end of a meal that is meant to help one digest his meal. Clearly, the root of the term is the same as that of the word “digestion.” Digestifs and aperitifs are meant to bookend a meal, with an aperitif at the beginning and a digestif at the end. The terms come from the French language.
