Aperol served over one large rock with the slice of orange.  I planned to serve Campari but there was none left ...

If bourbon is your favorite, the Paper Plane is delicious (though it does call for Amaro Nonino, which is not super common and a little expensive but worth looking for)

If you have a favorite Campari cocktail, maybe a Negroni, you can try substituting Aperol or using a 1:1 mix of Aperol and Campari.

 

If Amaro Nonino is not readily available then Ramazotti, as noted in the notes on Kindred Cocktail page, can make an interesting substitution. Not that Ramazotti is necessarily a household bottle for most people either, but it may be a bit more available and a bit less expensive than Nonino.

 

Both are certainly worth having!.

Finally got around to trying the "Intro" (didn't have any oranges!).  Because I love gin, I tried this one first.

it was very good!  Tomorrow I'll try another of the variations.

One of the better uses of Aperol in my opinion, the Rope Burn (Allan Katz) with Smith & Cross Jamaican rum, Bonal gentiane-quina, Aperol. I didn't have a grapefruit on hand for the peel garnish, so I used a few drops of BDW grapefruit bitters.

But you know what, I also tried it with Amaro CioCiaro, and I think I liked that version a bit better! :)

We had a drink we liked very much last week: equal parts gin, Aperol, cointreau and lemon juice, plus a dash or a few drops of Absinthe. The friend who made it got the recipe from someone and didn't have a name for it. I think it is similar to a Corpse Reviver 2, in which Lillet is used in place of Aperol. Does anyone know the name for this drink?
