A cool cocktail that combines two Italian aperitifs, Aperol and Fernet-Branca.

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce Fernet-Branca
  • 1½ ounces Aperol
  • 2 ounces tonic water

Directions

Pour Fernet-Branca, Aperol, and tonic water into a tall tumbler and mix. Add ice and serve with an orange slice as a garnish.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
