Our autumnal take on the summer staple teams the popular Italian aperitif Aperol with hard pear cider, fresh lemon juice, and a juicy pear slice. It's the sweater set of cocktails: light enough for mild days, but cozy enough for cool nights ahead.


  • 1 ounce Aperol

  • 3 ounces hard pear cider, such as Rekorderlig

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • Seltzer and slice of pear (such as Bartlett), for serving


  1. Fill a glass with crushed ice. Pour in Aperol, pear cider, and lemon juice. Stir, top with seltzer, and garnish with pear slice. Serve immediately.
