Tequila Cocktail: Part-Time Lover

Aiming to create a drink that can be enjoyed year-round, Jon Weimorts turned to the time-tested match of tequila and Aperol. “The bitterness from the lemon and Aperol is tamed by the sweetness of the elderflower, which I decided to use instead of simple syrup to add depth of flavor,” he says.


  • 1 1/2 oz. blanco tequila
  • 1/2 oz. Aperol
  • 1/2 oz. elderflower liqueur
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:rocks
  • Garnish:grapefruit peel


Shake the ingredients together with ice. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish.
