    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.

    [$$] Diet Vodka? Ketel One Concocts a Less Boozy Version

    The owner of Ketel One vodka thinks it has an answer to slumping U.S. sales: less alcohol. Diageo PLC, the world’s largest liquor maker, said it is launching a botanical version of Ketel One with 30% alcohol by volume. The new drink doesn’t meet the definition of vodka under U.S. and European regulations, which mandate that neutral distilled spirits must be bottled at 40% alcohol by volume and flavored ones at 37.5%.

    Tesco outperforms as tension over Syria drags Britain's FTSE down

    Renewed caution among investors dented Britain's top share index on Wednesday as Western forces discussed possible military action against Syria, although strong results from Tesco pushed its shares higher. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) was down 0.13 percent, though it remained near the six-week high it reached on Tuesday after several days of gains. "Western military action against Syria seems imminent - and that is obviously going to lead to lots of worse things than yield curves being flattened/levelled entirely if it happens," Rabobank analysts said in a note.

    SAP revises pricing after crackdown on big customers backfires

    SAP is revising how it prices its core business planning software after a legal crackdown against high-profile customers Diageo and AB InBev caused a backlash with its wider customer base, who feared they might be hit by hidden, indirect charges. The German company said on Tuesday it will offer a new model for sales, licence audits and pricing that will serve as an alternative to its decades-old approach of charging customers by the number of users accessing its software. The new pricing model, known as "indirect access" covers the increasing use of SAP products with non-SAP systems, running automated processes in the cloud or handling machine-to-machine transactions by internet-connected devices or sensors, the so-called "internet of things".
