The Aperol Sour is a wonderful cocktail for spring and summer, with plenty of fresh citrus, botanical notes, and an eye-catching cloud of fluffy foam on top. Reminiscent of the Amaretto Sour, the Aperol Sour takes a sweet liqueur and makes it the focal point of the drink (rather than a spirit like whiskey or gin). The key with a sour-style cocktail that makes a liqueur the main event is to be sure to balance all that sweetness with plenty of fresh citrus. It also benefits tremendously from adding an ounce or so of complementary spirit to the mix. In this case, it’s most often paired with gin ..read more

Passion fruit syrup is the perfect combination of sweet, sour, and tropical. Passion fruits are naturally sweet but also quite sour, with an almost floral-like aroma.

If you want the flavor of vanilla in a sweet syrup, there are tons of vanilla syrups available at the grocery store or on Amazon.
