A refreshing start to summer!

A refreshing start to summer!

Two of my favorite Summer sippers are Aperol, a slightly sweet and bitter apéritif and Fino Sherry, a dry, crisp, yeasty treat. What better way to maximize on my love for both than combining them in a delicious cocktail. Both are relatively low in alcohol so the addition of a local vodka adds just enough kick without packing too much of a punch. This is a perfect way to start your evening or enjoyed poolside!


1.5 oz. Aperol

1 oz. Lustau Fino Sherry

1/2 oz. Tuthilltown Indigenous Wheat Vodka

1 oz. Fresh squeezed lemon juice

Dash orange bitters

Dash rhubarb syrup, Morris Kitchen or recipe here. This is also wonderful added to sparkling wine!

splash club soda

Fresh orange peel for garnish

Add Aperol, Sherry, lemon juice, Vodka, bitters, rhubarb syrup to shaker filled with ice. Shake till outside of shaker becomes frosty and strain into chilled stem glass. Add splash club soda to taste and garnish with fresh orange twist
