How to make a 212

Tequila Aperol Cocktail

Aperol and tequila work remarkably well together. The sweetness from the agave compliments the bitter nuances of the grapefruit and the complexity of Aperol. A perfect daytime sipper.

The recipe was originally created by Aisha Sharpe and Willy Shine of Contemporary Cocktails consultancy. They created drinks for some of NYC’s most popular bars. The cocktail was also featured in the well renowned PDT Cocktail Book.
