Every Friday, we’ll be pairing our music playlists & recommendations with a coordinating cocktail by our resident lady of the bar, Miss Karen Grill. Because what matches a little weekend musical inspiration better than an equally delicious cocktail in hand?
A girl’s night in is never complete without the right party music, and definitely not without a cocktail or two. Ditch the convenience store wine or the usual sangria and opt for an upgrade that makes a statement.
This cocktail is easy to make and guaranteed to impress your girlfriends (if your singing voice doesn’t…)
Grab a cocktail shaker (or two pint glasses if you don’t have one) and toss in:
- 1 halved strawberry
- 3/4 ounces fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 ounces of simple sugar (equal parts granulated sugar and hot water. Do this ahead of time.)
- 1 ounce unflavored vodka
- 1 ounce Aperol
Shake up with ice and pour over the rocks and garnish with a strawberry
For the hostess with the mostest, multiply this recipe and make it a punch!
