The Paper Plane

Cold drink for the Cold War

  • .75 ounce Ky Bourbon (a splash more depending on threat level)
  • .75 ounce Aperol
  • .75 ounce Amaro
  • .5 ounce lemon juice

Combine everything in a mixing glass with ice and stir, strain into a glass and garnish with your burned passport shaped like a paper plane.

The Paper Plane is a classic typically made with specific Italian bitter liqueurs like Aperol and Amaro Nonino, but during trying times like saving the world in Pandemic Season 0, necessity is the mother of invention. We subbed in some Bruto Americano and Averna and dialed back the lemon and it lead to One Quiet Night, for sure.
