  • Cocktail shaker


  • 1 oz Aperol
  • 0.75 oz bourbon
  • 0.75 oz Amaro (I used Amaro Sirene, but Amaro Nonino is also great)
  • 0.75 oz lemon juice
  • 2 oz brut sparkling wine
  • Lemon twist and mini paper plane for garnish


  • Add all ingredients except the champagne and garnishes into a shaker with ice and shake.
  • Strain into a fluted glass with ice. Top with the champagne and stir. Garnish with lemon twist and paper plane.


To make the mini paper plane for the garnish, I cut a small 1 1/2” rectangle from striped paper and followed the regular instructions for making paper planes. I then cut a small slit on the bottom to fit onto the glass rim.
