The paper plane is a citrusy cocktail most similar to the characteristics of a more bitter whiskey sour or sidecar. It’s smooth, warm, and refreshing.
- 3/4 ounces bourbon
- 3/4 ounces Aperol
- 3/4 ounces amaro (pref. Nonino)*
- 3/4 ounces lemon juice
- Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a cup of ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupe glass.
I’ve also used Amaro Averna and Amaro Montenegro as substitutes.
