These fine folks from Atlanta, GA are doing some crazy things with flavour combinations & infusions, it’s great to see people thinking out of the box and pushing the envelope. I’ll be mixing up some drinks with these soon and giving you my take on them.
In the mean time follow 1821 Bitters on Instagram to see what they’re up to and for some great original & classic cocktail recipes, whiskey drinks, and more.
Came up with this one on the day after my birthday, last year, with help from my wife, who suggested the terrific name. Gin, Lemon, Aperol, Maraschino … this drink is totally glamorous. It’s also really good, perhaps my favorite of the Final 25 drinks that I’ve featured so far!
I’ve extolled the virtues of Aperol before, but I’ll do so again here: if you’re looking to get into Italian aperitifs and digestifs, but you’ve not yet trained your palette to love the bitter flavor that so often accompanies them, Aperol is a great place to start. It has a flavor profile similar to Campari (albeit with more orange to it), but is much less bitter. It plays great with a wide variety of cocktail ingredients, but it’s also very nice on its own over ice. Inexpensive and low-ABV, it’s definitely worth a shot.
