The recipe for the Paper Plane Cocktail is easy to remember, thanks to being an equal parts cocktail. The bourbon base is combined with Aperol, Amaro and lemon juice, shaken with ice and served up. It’s a balance of sour and bitter with the sweetness of bourbon. The recipe calls for 3/4 oz of each ingredient which is converted here to 22.5 ml. You can round it up to 25 ml if you wish.
