“This is a very potable drink, easy on the eyes and pleasing to the palate. Spiritually balanced! Perfect for Spring, Summertime or enjoyed year round,” Danny Parlin.
2 slices cucumber
22.5 ml (.75 oz) Aperol
22.5 ml (.75 oz) Amaro Nonino
22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lemon juice
22.5 ml (.75 oz) simple syrup
1 skinned cucumber spear wrapped in an orange twist, as garnish
Muddle the cucumber slices in a mixing glass; add ice and the remaining ingredients. Shake well, and double strain into a chilled coupe. Add the garnish.
gaz sez: Danny Parlin is a true pain in the ass. I requested pictures of the drink from him (he did really well, doncha think?), and when he sent them to me he added that he’d changed the recipe a little, so I had to re-test. Well, he might be a pain in the ass, but his tweak worked, and resulted in a very unusual, light and flavorful, truly original Pisco cocktail. Well done, Danny.
