Friday Night Cocktail

This is the last alcoholic FNC in January, I made this one before New Year and it’s not what I’ll be drinking tonight!


It’s another drink from the PDT Cocktail Book and has Aperol which seems to be my new favourite thing! According to the book, it’s named after “the Archangel Gabriel following a spirited conversation about Argentinean soccer legend Gabriel Batistuta”. It’s a three ingredient cocktail and although requires a tiny bit of work with the muddling, worth it.


Archangel (from the PDT Cocktail Book by Jim Meehan)


2.25oz Plymouth Gin

.75oz Aperol

2 slices Cucumber


1) Muddle the cucumber and Aperol in a mixing glass

2) Add the gin and ice, then stir and fine-strain into a chilled coupe

3) Garnish with a lemon twist

What’s your Friday Night drink?
