During our stay at the fabulous TWA Hotel at JFK Airport, we connected with this fantastic cocktail, The Paper Airplane. Here is a recipe that’s almost as good as the ones we tasted at Connie, a Lockheed Constellation L-1649A which they transformed into a swanky cocktail lounge. Not only does this fantastic adult beverage hit all the right flavor notes, it’s even garnished it with, you guessed it, a paper airplane. We love the attention to detail! Cheers!
THE PAPER AIRPLANE
1.5 ounces Amaro
1.5 ounces Aperol
1.5 ounces bourbon
1.5 ounces fresh lemon juice, strained
Combine amaro, Aperol, bourbon, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is frosty, about 20 seconds. Strain into two coupe glasses. Garnish with a paper airplane. (Recipe courtesy of Bon Appetit)
