1 1⁄2 oz Gin, Beefeater (or any juniper forward London dry gin)
1⁄2 oz Aromatized wine, Cocchi Americano
1⁄2 oz Aperol
1⁄4 oz Honey syrup (1:1)
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
1 oz Cantaloupe (juice)
1 ds Saffron bitters, Barkeep
Instructions

Shake with ice, strain into a chilled coupe. No garnish.

Notes

Original recipe used 2 oz white rum (Denizen 3 year) instead of the gin / Cocchi combo, but I prefer the additional botanical complexity of this version. Also works with 2 oz of tequila or (gasp!) vodka in place of the gin / Cocchi.
