For those that enjoy the sweetly citrus taste of Negronis, this creative Paper Plane cocktail by Food52 offers a winter variation on the popular gin drink by subbing in bourbon and more robust flavors.
Along with its creative name, this cocktail is a zesty drink made exclusively for the winter months with deeper, richer and stronger flavors than its summer counterpart. The Paper Plane begins with a base of bourbon rather than gin which is a staple in a Negroni. Added is Aperol and Amaro to give the drink a bitter taste and a rustic red color along with a squeeze of lemon rather than orange. The drink is served over the rocks in a short glass.
