I googled and this drink is all over the web, on every craptail website just about everywhere. Pages and pages. I can't find any reference to where it came from. Has anyone actually had it? With the doubled-up orange flavors and that much sweet for the vermouth to lean out, it doesn't sound promising to me. I also don't understand the logic behind the garnish.

1.5 ounces strawberry juce,

1.5 ounces strawberry juce, 1/2oz Cinzano Bianco, 1/2oz Aperol, 1/2oz lime juice, 1/2oz Cointreau. Still foul. In a girly vacation sort of way. Needs an umbrella, a whiff of Coppertone and a topless beach.
