1 1⁄2 oz Aperol
1⁄4 oz Simple syrup
1 twst Orange peel (flamed, as garnish)

Shake, strain, straight up, cocktail glass, garnish


Surprisingly accessible. Not particularly bitter. Anise flavor is more subdued than you would expect.


"Another reference to Mr. Jean Lanfray, as he was said to have been drunk from 2pm to 2am daily."

  • My version: 2 aperol 0.25 absinthe - it's very subtle this way... maybe try 0.5 0.75 lemon juice 0.25 simple syrup 1 ds orange bitters It's too anisei without feeling any aperol otherwise.

Had to try this for the contradictory flavors (all of which are personal favorites), but was highly disappointed. This is more of a combination of ingredients rather than a balanced cocktail. Barely drinkable IMHO.
