Cocktail Hour: Aperol Sours...

And aperol sours done!

Sometimes when the weather is warmer you feel like a sophisticated cocktail that is pink and frothy.  For me, the Aperol Sour hits the spot in all of these elements.

What is Aperol?  Well it's an Italian Aperitif, a little like Campari but lower in alcohol and much less bitter.  It has an amazing pink glow too in a glass.

Making Aperol sours... #cocktailtime

 What you will need to create your Aperol Sour:

  • 2 oz. Aperol
  • 1 oz. egg white (the egg white of one egg should make 2 cocktails)
  • 3/4 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • ice
  • cocktail shaker
  • stemmed martini/cocktail glasses
(these measurements are for one cocktail, double if you are making for a friend as well!)

What do you do?

  • chill your glasses with ice and water while continuing the next steps
  • put a generous amount of ice into your cocktail shaker
  • add aperol, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white
  • shake in cocktail shaker until well combined and chilled (about 20 to 30 seconds)
  • strain into your pre-chilled glasses
  • garnish with a grapefruit twist (optional)

And drinking said Aperol Sour!!

 Now pop on some fabulous sunglasses and go relax outside, listen to some great tunes and enjoy!
