This Paper Plane Cocktail has just bourbon, Aperol, Amaro Nonino, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. It’s chic, simple, and sophisticated!


  • 1 1/2 oz bourbon
  • 1 1/2 oz aperol
  • 1 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 oz. amaro nonino


  1. Lemon Twist Garnish: Place your lemon slice on a cutting board. Using a paring knife, carefully cut along the peel so as to separate the fruit from the peel. Remove the fruit part and set aside so all you are left with is the peel. Cut the peel so it becomes a long strip and then twist it, hold it in place for 10 seconds to help the peel hold its shape. Set aside.
  2. Mix Cocktail: Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker along with 4-5 cubes of ice. Secure the lid and shake vigorously until the shaker is frosted. Strain into a coup glass and top with lemon twist.
