Aperol Sour

Aperol Sour cocktail with Aperol, gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup

The Aperol Sour is a perfect little gem with everything we could want in a cocktail: it’s sweet, tart, a little bit bitter, jaw-droppingly pretty, and easy to make. Despite the name, it’s a great showcase for any bitter citrus apéritif you like, although almost all other brands are more bitter and less sweet than Aperol.

An email request from a user (yes, we read them!) set us off on a quixotic journey to find the best possible incarnation of this recipe. We employed our usual scientific technique: making every recipe we found in the first five pages of a Google search, downing the results, and taking copious notes. In the end, the winner ended up being the recipe that the user herself sent along with the request, which she first discovered from a bartender at King Tai in Brooklyn. Thanks, NC!

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. It really needs no garnish – but an orange twist or coin wouldn’t be unwelcome.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
