Aperire

 

Apéritif is a French word derived from the Latin verb aperire, which means “to open”.

I don’t know if this is relevant or not, but reportedly: the 5th-century Christian ascetic Diadochos of Photiki wrote, “People who wish to discipline the sexual organs should avoid drinking those artificial concoctions which are called ‘aperitifs’—presumably because they open a way to the stomach for the vast meal which is to follow.”
