Pan Am

Pan Am cocktail with rum and Aperol

We’re big fans of Jamie Oliver’s “Drinks Tube” channel on YouTube, and this fantastic drink we found there is excellent proof of the quality of the recipes shared there.

This one is an invention of London barman Barney Toy, and it won second place in a world-wide Bacardi competition. We think Toy was robbed – this velvety cloud of citrus and almond wins top honors in our book.

The original recipe uses Aperol for the bitter citrus apéritif, and we stick with that when we make it. You can use Campari, but it will be a good deal more bitter.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all ingredients except the bitters to a shaker. Dry-shake first (meaning, without ice), then add ice and shake again. Since this drink contains egg, you should double-strain it to remove any nasty eggy bits (or bean bits, if using aquafaba).

Serve in a chilled cocktail glass, champagne coupe, or other pretty glass. Add a few drops of bitters to the foam. If you’re artistic, drag a toothpick through the foam to create a fancy pattern.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
