Our curated Aperol cocktail kit is a great option for those looking to expand their flavour horizons with unique and delicious Aperol cocktails.
The highlights of our aperol cocktail kit include:
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.
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
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.
A delightfully refreshing interpretation of the classic Aperol Spritz.
Ingredients: Martini Prosecco, Aperol, Grapefruit Juice,
Garnish: Grapefruit Slice.
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

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:
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:
|30 – 60 ml (1 – 2oz)
|Internal Marking Lines
|7.5ml, 15ml, 22.5ml, 30ml, 45ml (1⁄4, 1⁄2, 3⁄4, 1 1⁄2 oz)
More details on these individual pieces above are below.
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:
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.

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.

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:
|40 cm (15.75”)
|Spoon Bowl Size
|5 ml (1 teaspoon)
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:
|12.7 cm (5”) and 17.8 cm (7”)
|532 ml (18 oz) and 828 ml (28 oz)
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.

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.
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:
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.

A unique part of our Aperol kit is that it includes a cocktail making guide. This is great for a group facilitated virtual mixology class, or personal at home mixology class.
Our Aperol cocktail making guide includes:
This cocktail making guide helps facilitate a self guided mixology experience. It also is a great reference to use during or to refer to after a virtual mixology class.
