The first time we took a sip of a Paper Plane we were in love. It’s a boozy cocktail that goes down smoothly because the combination of flavours is just right – lemon juice and Aperol provide the citrus notes to cut through the boldness of bourbon. Plus, this cocktail is oh so pretty with it’s bright orange hue.
The Paper Plane is so delicious it will win over those that aren’t big fans of bourbon (example: Vanessa. Alyssa and I on the other hand are huge fans of bourbon!). You’ll be drinking these again and again.
- 3/4 oz Bourbon (we used Maker’s Mark)
- 3/4 oz Aperol
- 3/4 Amaro Nonino Quintessentia
- 3/4 lemon juice
- Cocktail shaker
This cocktail is super easy to make. Add all your ingredients to a shaker filled with ice and stir! Then strain into a coupe glass or any glassware of your choosing really.
