Flamingo Cocktail Recipe

Flamingo

The bright orange hue of this cocktail comes from the combination of the Italian aperitif Aperol and guava nectar. I like it with sekt, the light sparkling wine that comes from Germany. It would be fine before dinner though it would also be quite tasty with for brunch, if you can rationalize it.

Makes 1 cocktail

  • 2 ounces guava nectar
  • 1 ounce Aperol
  • 1/2 ounce vodka
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 4-5 ounces sekt
  • Lemon twist, for garnish

Add guava nectar, Aperol, vodka and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until well chilled; strain into a martini glass. Top off with sekt. Garnish with a lemon peel.
