Sophisticated and delightful aromas of tangerine and rhubarb. The palate entry is delightfully citrusy and sweet; the midpalate phase offers just enough herbal bitterness to balance. Ends up refreshing, orangey sweet and delectably herbal. This deserves to become a popular pre-dinner quaff. 90-95 Highly Recommended The Wine Enthusiast
Add 1½ ounces of bourbon (we like Buffalo Trace),
1 ounce of Aperol,
½ ounce of fresh lemon juice
¼ ounce of maple syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice.
Add a dash of Angostura bitters.
Shake that all up hard, then strain it into a tall glass with ice. Add 2 ounces of soda, and garnish with a lemon wheel and mint sprig. Pro tip: Gently slap that mint on your hand a few times to release its aromatic oils before using it to garnish. Carey Jones and John D. McCarthy, Food and Wine
