Wild Heart Cocktail Recipe

1 – 1/4 ounces Aperol
1 – 1/4 ounces vermouth
3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Bitter lemon soda (such as San Pellegrino Limonata or Fever-Tree Bitter Lemon)
1/2 orange wheel

Combine Aperol, vermouth, lemon juice, and bitters in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice and shake until outside of shaker is frosty, about 30 seconds. Strain into an ice-filled Old-Fashioned glass. Top with lemon soda and garnish with orange wheel.

I created “Heart Shaped Ice Cubes” by using a silicon heart Ice cube Tray- I got on-line- it’s easy and it’s a great addition to the “Wild Heart” Cocktail! Enjoy!
