Cocktail Du Jour
So its happy hour in the Mayhew household, and apparently my day has been a little longer than usual. Anyway, I attempted to make one of my preferred libations, but I wasn't paying attention and ended up with something else instead. I felt like that old Reese's Peanut Butter Cups ad, "You spilled your peanut butter in my chocolate!/ You spilled your chocolate in my peanut butter!". Sometimes, it takes a random event (or a complete lack of attention) to find out that some flavors work together. You might call it kismet..
The Kismet Cocktail
2 oz Aperol
1 oz John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum
1 oz Aviation Gin
Build over the rocks in a double rocks glass.
