Description

The Blood Orange Aperol Collins is a light, refreshing take on a classic Tom Collins cocktail that uses Solerno blood orange liqueur and Aperol to create a unique combination of flavors.  This is a great summer cocktail.

A Tom Collins, which is traditionally made with gin, lemon, sugar, and soda water, is the perfect vehicle for the bright, bitter flavors of an amaro like Aperol. Adding the Solerno gives the drink another dimension of flavor from the deep, sweet blood orange. The sugar in the liqueur replaces the simple syrup that you would usually use in this drink. You can also vary the amount of Aperol (from 1/2 to 3/4 oz) depending on how bitter you like your cocktails.

Ingredients

2 oz gin
3/4 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz Aperol
1/2 oz Solerno
Club soda
Blood Orange, optional

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
