Italian Love Bite

Plenty of Aperol in stock inspired Marcella to create her “Italian Love Bite”.

Marcella working her magic behind the bar. Join us at L'Ecole for a Love Bite starting today.

The recipe:

1.5 oz. Aperol
1 oz. Dolin Blanc
1 oz. Finger Lakes Distilling Pear Brandy
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 egg white (equivalent to 1 oz.)
dash salt
dash club soda

Combine all ingredients, except for club soda, and dry shake.  Add ice and club soda, shake again, and strain into chilled martini glass.  I asked what the garnish was and was told, “it’s so pretty, it doesn’t need one.”  See for yourself:

Candy-heart pink with notes of ripe pear and herbs, and a beautiful froth on top. Girly, without being sweet.
