I served this as an aperitif at my December dinner party, and it's become a firm favourite since. It's reminiscent of a negroni, one of my favourites, but is slightly sweeter, and with less kick-you-in-the-face strength. Aperol is something I've only recently discovered, and it's similar to Campari, but not as strong. A couple of these at the beginning of an evening will set you up very nicely indeed.
- 1 shot Aperol
- 1 shot Tanqueray gin
- a cross section, circular slice of orange
- Quina Fina tonic
Put ice and orange slice in your glass, add the booze and then top with a little tonic.
