Half a Century

aperol Dec 13, 2019

Today our friend Christina celebrates her fiftieth birthday, and we are so eager to present this Cocktail Detour Original recipe to her.⁠

We used rum and Aperol as the booze base, and added pineapple juice, simple syrup and fresh lime juice to balance everything. The pineapple juice creates a nice foam, as well as contributing with an exotic sweetness. We think it all works out really well and that it is the perfect birthday drink, with some tiki vibes. ⁠

Happy Birthday Christina, we are confident you'll get to sip on this Half A Century very soon!⁠
