Aperol Kit Details

Menu Of Aperol Cocktails Included

Aperol Spritz

The roots of the Aperol date back to 1919. The aperitivo (enhances appetite) is designed to be consumed before dinner. While any sparkling wine can be combined with Aperol and soda, note that a true Aperol Spritz calls specifically for Italian bubbly. 

Ingredients: Martini Prosecco, Aperol, Fever Tree Club Soda. 

Garnish: Orange And Tangerine.

Paper Plane

Invented in 2008, by the award-winning bartender Sam Ross. Sam says “This cocktail is named after the M.I.A. track that was blasting on repeat the summer we worked on the drink”. 

Ingredients: Jim Beam Black Bourbon, Nonino Quintessentia Amaro, Aperol, Lemon Juice.

Garnish: Flying Lemon Peel

Aperol Sour (Vegan Friendly)

Sours are a family of cocktails that contain a base spirit or liqueur, a citrus juice, and a sweetener.The sour is the best test of a bartender’s mastery of creating “balance” amongst these three ingredients. 

Our Aperol Sour uses a vegan based cocktail foamer made of chickpea broth (plant based egg alternative) which adds a flavour neutral foamy texture to the top of the cocktail. 

Ingredients: Aperol, Beefeater London Dry Gin, Lemon Juice, Peychaud’s Bitters , Dried Chickpea Broth (Plant Based Egg Alternative), 

Garnish: Peychaud’s Bitters and Lily Flower.

Grapefruit Spritz

A delightfully refreshing interpretation of the classic Aperol Spritz. 

Ingredients: Martini Prosecco, Aperol, Grapefruit Juice, 

Garnish: Grapefruit Slice.

Aperol Gin And Tonic

The ingredient that sets tonic water apart from other lemon-lime sodas is quinine. Quinine is an intensely bitter plant alkaloid, and comes from the bark of the South American cinchona tree. Quinine has been used as a medicinal herb in present-pay Bolivia and Peru since before recorded history, and since the sixteenth century by Europeans as a malaria cure. 

We use Fever Tree tonic water which uses quinine from the deep forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo. It has distinctive quinine and oils from Mexican Bitter Oranges, to give a uniquely clean and refreshing taste and aroma.

Ingredients: Beefeater London Dry Gin, Aperol, Lime Juice, Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water.

Garnish: Torched Rosemary And Lime Garnish

Jigger Bartender Tool

Japanese Style Jigger

A “free pour” refers to the style of pouring spirits or ingredients directly into a glass (mixing or otherwise). When free pouring it is difficult to achieve consistency for three reasons: 

  • Various liquid drink ingredients have different levels of viscosity that impact the rate at which these travel through a pour spout and into the drink. 
  • The person making the drinks is not typically making the same cocktails over and over again with the same ingredients allowing for the practice necessary to achieve the same results. 
  • Cocktails typically have smaller amounts of multiple ingredients making free pouring accurately more difficult. 

To help ensure drinks are made consistently tasty these need to be measured by volume. Measuring also allows you to more efficiently create new recipes or improve on existing ones. 

The tool used often in cooking to properly measure ingredients would be measuring spoons or cups, and the cocktail equivalent tool is a measured jigger. A measured jigger is a mission critical tool for a cocktail starter set. 

We selected the Barfly M37005 as our jigger of choice to help make the best bartender kit because of these benefits: 

  • It has interior markings to accurately measure incremental amounts of  1⁄4, 1⁄2, 3⁄4, 1 1⁄2 oz. 
  • It is made of stainless steel for extreme durability and easy cleaning. 
  • It has an elongated design to support more accurate measurements and smooth pouring. 
  • Its satin finish to maintain a great appearance with long term daily use.

This set incorporates the following tools:

  • Mixing Glass
  • Julep Strainer
  • Bar Spoon
  • Shaker
  • Hawthorne Strainer
  • Fine Mesh Strainer
  • Jigger

More details on these individual pieces above are below.

Mixing Glass For The Best Bartender Kit

For stirred drinks the vessel which it is created in has a large impact on the finished cocktail. 

We selected a Japanese-style mixing glass as a preferred choice to help make the best cocktail set because of these benefits:

  • It has a spout which makes pouring drinks easy.
  • Weight of the glass facilitates stability while stirring. 
  • It has a stunning cut glass design with exceptional clarity to showcase the drink being crafted. 
  • Easy cleaning and dishwasher safe. 
  • Once chilled glass retains its temperature well. 

Glass is a great insulator allowing it to retain its cold temperature well, however because of this attribute it takes a long time to get cold. For this reason you must always pre-chill your mixing glasses in the freezer or with ice and water before use.

Bottom Diameter 8.9 cm (3.5”)
Top Diameter 11.4 cm (4”)

julep strainer

Julep Strainers For Mixology Bartender Kit

The julep strainer was originally crafted in the mid 1800s to hold back the crushed ice while enjoying a classic mint julep cocktail in a Julep tin cup. 

We selected the julep strainer as the preferred choice of strainer for our curated stirred cocktail tool set because it fits nicely in a mixing glass, holding back the ice as its tiny holes allow the liquid to pass through evenly and quickly to help avoid air bubbles to maintain that silky texture. 

Julep Strainer Specs
Length 15.6 cm (6 1/8“) 
Handle Length 7.6 cm (3” )
Strainer Length 8.3 cm (3 1/4“)
Strainer Width 5.9 cm (2 15/16”)
Material Stainless Steel
Dishwasher Safe Yes

Bar Spoon For Bar Mixology Set

A great bar spoon allows you to stir quickly and smoothly without adding air bubbles to the drink to ensure a silky smooth mouthfeel.

Our long-handled Japanese-style barspoon was selected as the preferred choice to help make the best bar tools set because of these benefits:

  • Its extra long length facilitates smoother stirring than conventional shorter bar spoons.
  • The tightly spiraled handle allows the spoon to be kept in a consistent place in the hand while stirring and is comfortable.
  • It has a standard 5 ml (1 teaspoon) bowl size. 
  • The teardrop-shaped weight on the end offers a great counterbalance for smooth and fast stirring. 
  • Made of a single piece of stainless steel for superior durability and sanitation.

cocktail shaker

Bartender Shaker For Your Drink Mixing Set

A good quality shaker is a critical piece of equipment for a cocktail mixer set. The 18 and 28 oz weighted stainless steel shaker tins were selected as the preferred choice to help make the best mixology set for these benefits:

  • All metal mixology shaker with great thermal conductivity to chill drinks fast.
  • Forms an airtight seal when the two tins are pressed together, so liquid does not escape while shaking. 
  • The pliable nature of stainless steel makes it easy to separate the two tins when ready to pour the drink making it great for speed. 
  • The bartender cocktail shaker is made of stainless steel for superior durability and sanitation.

Hawthorne Strainer For Bartender Tool Kit

The Hawthorne strainer goes back to the year 1892, when a patent was issued to its inventor, William Wright, and Dennis P. Sullivan, who owned Boston’s Hawthorne Café.

Our hawthorne strainer features bilateral slots that can direct the flow of liquid into two streams allowing you to make two drinks at once. It also features a vertical tab that allows you to adjust the flow of the liquid as you pour.

This tool is a necessity for a home bartender kit. 

Hawthorne Strainer Specs
Length 15.2 cm (6”)
Width 12.1 cm (4 ¾”)
Material Stainless Steel 
Dishwasher Safe Yes

Fine Mesh Strainer For Cocktail Bar Kit

To maintain a silky smooth mouth feel a shaken cocktail requires a two stage straining process to eliminate small chips of ice, and any other tiny particles from ingredients such as muddled fruit and herbs. We include a stainless steel fine mesh strainer to eliminate these smaller particles. 

Another benefit of the fine mesh strainer is that it helps to aerate the head of the cocktail more when used in combination with the hawthorne strainer. 

Fine Mesh Strainer Specs
Length 8.75”
Diameter 2”
Material  Stainless Steel
Dishwasher Safe Yes

Cocktail Ice Cube Tray

The amount of ice that melts in a length of time is proportional to how much heat is transferred into the ice. The heat transferred into the ice is directly proportional to the surface area exposed to the environment. A larger ice cube has less surface area proportionally to its volume than a smaller cube, so therefore it melts much more slowly. 

Due to the aforementioned we offer a large cocktail cube ice tray for our set to help make good quality ice for a home cocktail bar cart. 

A silicone large cube tray was selected as the preferred choice for our set for these benefits:

  • Made of durable silicone.
  • Option to add to a drinks aesthetic or taste by freezing ingredients inside of the cubes such as juices, herbs, and flowers. 

Cold water has more trapped gasses than hot water, so to help improve the clarity of and density of your ice we recommend using hot water to fill the tray. Ice with lots of air bubbles will break down more rapidly while making or enjoying a drink which may lead to over dilution of the drink flavours. 

We also recommend avoiding stacking ice cube trays on top of each other while in the freezer. The trays in the middle produce cloudy ice because they freeze almost equally from all sides trapping the most impurities and air bubbles from gases.

Cube Size 1.25” Square Size

Width  4.5”
