This is another one of my favorite cocktails, and probably my favorite tequila cocktail. It tastes like a more sophisticated Margarita. The honey simple syrup gives it depth, and the Aperol adds a bitterness that really compliments the tequila. There's not much else to say, except: try it!

History: You don't have to go back too far for this one; it was invented at The Independent in Somerville, MA.


1 1/2 oz. tequila blanco
1 oz. Aperol
3/4 oz. honey simple syrup
3/4 oz. lime juice

Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker. Shake until chilled. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
