About this Cocktail

From Dinah Sanders book The Art of the Shim. Originally served in an old fashioned glass.

  • 2oz Aperol
  • 1oz lemon juice
  • 1/2oz Bourbon
  • 4 dashes of rhubarb bitters
  • Lemon peel garnish

Add all ingredients to shaker and fill with ice. Shake thoroughly and strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with two lemon twists rolled into a flower because my lady likes pretty things.

    This is what I shoulda made 10 minutes ago instead of the Americano I'm drinking at the moment. Guess two pre-dinner cocktails are now in order.

    That's the great thing about a shim, you can have a few more of them.
