As summer starts to come to an end, it’s the perfect time to sit on the deck enjoying an Aperol Lemonade. Old Edwards Mixologist Jimmy Blyther makes his with special house-made Limoncello, but it’s quite delicious with the store- bought version as well. This is a beautiful cocktail for entertaining on the patio. Once you get the hang of it, you can mix up a pitcher and really spark up your table.
The recipe is simple, and you can adjust the sweetness to your taste by adjusting the simple syrup.
2 oz Limoncello
½ oz Vodka
½ oz Aperol
½ oz Simple Syrup
2 oz Soda (more or less, depending on your taste and glass size)
Place all ingredients except the soda in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously.
Strain into a glass filled with ice, and then top with soda.
Garnish with lemon slices, tucking one down into the glass, and top with a spring of fresh mint.
