From the bartender’s corner – Part-time Lover
Difford’s Guide credits the recipe to an adaptation from one created in 2016 by Jon Weimorts (bartender at The Idle Hour in Los Angeles – on Vineland Ave near the intersection with Camarillo St).
I am not big fan of tequila (prefer mezcal) but tried this with Tequila (reposado variety), Elderflower liqueur, Aperol, bitters and lime juice.
The confusion of summery citrusy nose and the bitter palate of the Aperol with the length of a tequila matched perfectly the confusing weather in Atlanta today. After a few days of cold days, it was unusually springy today.
