If you want to use Campari for this cocktail instead of Aperol, try reducing the amount to ½ ounce and increasing the simple syrup to compensate.
  • 1½ ounces gin
  • ¾ ounce lemon syrup (see below, OR ½ ounce simple syrup and ½ ounce lemon juice)
  • ¾ ounce Aperol
  • 3 to 4 ounces soda water
  • Lemon syrup: Combine equal parts lemon juice and sugar. Either shake heartily in a closed container to combine, or heat to a simmer on the stove until the sugar dissolves, then let cool. We keep this on hand all summer for making lemonade-based drinks and radlers (beer and lemonade). It will last at least 1 month in the refrigerator in a closed container.
  1. - Mix together the gin, lemon syrup, and Aperol, either in a shaker with a bit of ice (especially helpful if your gin and Aperol are at room temperature) or in your serving glass (which should be large enough hold a 6-8 ounce cocktail with some ice). Add a few cubes of ice.
  2. - Top with soda water and give a quick stir to mix the ingredients.
