1 oz Aperol (or Luxardo Bitter)
1 oz Aromatized wine, Cocchi Americano
1 oz Aromatized wine, Lillet Rose
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
1⁄2 oz Simple syrup
1 sli Orange
1 sli Lemon

Stir, strain into a chimney over fresh ice and bubbles, drop in orange slice and fruit in season, serve with straw. Garnish with lemon wedge and squeeze in to taste.


Takes very well to variations: muddled berries, cucumber, different lengtheners (strawberry lambic would be good). Makes a good cobbler. Add an ounce of gin or tequila to make a good Negroni (or Negroni Swizzle) variant.

How did you get the trees in your cocktail not to have shadows?
