Angelcot Lavender Aperol Spritz
Sometimes the bartender in me comes out and I crave a cocktail. With loving drinks that have depth, flavor, and something that'll put hair on your chest. But today, I wanted to make something a little more refreshing for those summer afternoons sitting out on the porch reading your favorite magazine. This drink has lots of depth and a plethora of botanical notes. Perfect for those summer days
3 oz. Aperol
2 oz Lavender Simple Syrup (Recipe down below)
2 Angelcots (white apricots)
1 oz Lime Juice
Step 1: Simple Syrup
In a pot add your cup of sugar and cup of water into a small sauce pan and turn it on to medium heat. Stir until sugar is combined. When liquid is clear, your simple syrup is ready. I used lavender paste (can be bought at Meijer). Set syrup aside and let cool.
Step 2: In a shaker add your angelcots and muddle until into a paste
Step 3: Add all of your other ingredients including the cooled lavender simple syrup. Not the seltzer.
Step 4: Shake!
Step 5: Pour mixture into a glass and top with your seltzer water
Step 6: Serve!
