Author Notes

This is a simple variation on an Americano cocktail, replacing the Campari with Aperol and adding aromatic bitters to make a drink that's a little lighter and more citrusy and absolutely fantastic as a pre-dinner drink. —fiveandspice

What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 ounces Aperol
  • 1 1/2 ounces sweet vermouth (I recommend Cocchi Vermouth di Torino)
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 ounces soda
  • orange twist or slice, for garnish
  1. Combine the Aperol, vermouth, and bitters in an ice-filled glass, and top with soda. Stir gently to combine and garnish with orange twist or orange slice.

Thanks for this recipe. I'm starting NYE off with this beverage now! The low ABV options are great to have. Cheers!

A wimpy Negroni, just drink the classic Negroni cocktail for goodness sakes.
