not a drink that is asking you to "hold the mayonnaise", rather a delicious combination of aperol, st germain (elderflower liqueur) and fizz which, according to the pufferies of the st germain recipe writer, is “much like affaires de l’amour this cocktail will help you tolerate all that is bitter and sweet.”

combine, in a shaker, 1 ½ shot gin or vodka, ¾ shot of st germain (or you could use elderflower cordial), ½ shot aperol and ½ shot of lemon juice. shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe. finish with a float of fizz (we used cava, the recipe calls for champagne) and garnish with an orange peel.
