I was gifted with a fresh orange and asked to make a cocktail with it and gin, here is what I made up:

  • 1.5oz Gin
  • 1.5oz Orange Juice
  • 0.5oz Ginger Liqueur
  • 0.5oz Aperol

Shaked, strained over ice in a rock glass, garnished with a orange wedge rubbed against the glass rim.

It wasn’t very strong and the ingredients played along really well, you couldn’t fell any bitter taste from Aperol at all.

May try with 1oz of OJ next time.
