Paper Plane

Paper Plane cocktail with bourbon, Amaro Nonino, Aperol, and lemon juice

The Paper Plane is the creation of Sam Ross, who was listening to the M.I.A. song of the same name as he tinkered with the recipe. It’s a delicious equal-parts sour, with bourbon and Aperol laying down a solid foundation for the magic flavors of Amaro Nonino.

Ross’ original recipe actually called for Campari, a much bitterer citrus apéritif than Aperol. We like the updated version, but feel free to try with either one you like, or any other bitter citrus apéritif you have on hand.

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!
