Explanation: Before beginning to eat in a restaurant, you're served entrantes. A tapa is something you're served (free in Spain by custom and an old law) with an alcoholic drink. An aperitivo is, for example, Vermouth or Martini, before you dine.

Explanation: In Mexico we say antojito - aperitivo works too - it depends on where you live. In Mexco aperitivo would be a drink - antojito would be a tastey morsel before dinner. Hope this helps! Good luck!
