This recipe replaces Cointreau or Tripe Sec with Aperol and uses seltzer water for a little refreshing effervescence.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz of Aperol
  • 1.5 oz of freshly squeezed Lime Juice
  • 1 tablespoon Agave Nectar
  • 2 dashes of Orange Bitters

  • Ice
  • 3/4 cup of Seltzer Water or Club Soda

Instructions

Measure out liquors and Agave and pour into your glass.

2

Using a mortar and pestle, or anything you can smash with, take the 4 slices of Serrano Pepper and mash them.

3

Pour a tiny bit of the liquor mixture in the mortar (bowl) and keep mashing.

Once it is all significantly mashed, pour the whole mixture back into your cocktail glass, add Orange Bitters and gently stir.
