3⁄4 oz Aromatized wine, Cocchi Americano
3⁄4 oz Aperol
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
1⁄4 oz Mint syrup (mint tea syrup)
1 oz Soda water (or sparkling wine)
1 twst Grapefruit peel (As garnish)
Instructions

Shake, strain over ice and soda or sparkling wine, and, optionally, seasonal fruit and herbs (as an in-glass garnish). Garnish with a long thin strip of grapefruit peel tied as best you can manage into a tie—half windsor for extra credit. Serve with straw.

Notes

Mint tea syrup: make a 1:1 syrup of white sugar and regular strength Moroccan mint tea, and then steep a sprig's worth of mint leaves for 20 minutes and strain.

History

Sort of a Pimm's Cup crossed with a mint Arnold Palmer. Sip those last few drops of summer.

  • Like a nice herbal iced tea with a bit of a kick. Kinda low ABV, and I'm not a fan of Pimm's, but this gives me a reason to keep some around.
  • Swapped out Pimm's No.1 with Averna and seemed alright! — ★★★★
