  • 1 oz. Aperol
  • ½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
  • 2 dashes chocolate bitters
  • 6 dashes orange bitters
  • Tools:shaker, strainer, fine strainer
  • Glass:rocks
  • Garnish:flamed orange peel


Shake all of the ingredients together with ice, then fine strain into a rocks glass over a single large ice cube. Carefully flame the orange peel over the top of the drink and garnish.
