Gin and Juice (with Cappelletti)
Cappelletti is a great fit for any drink with gin; the two spirits’ herbal elements blend together perfectly. Add dry fino sherry and you’ve got a dry and super-complex base for plenty of citrus. (And with two low-proof elements in here, it’s a reasonably mellow drink that’s great for hot summer days; it won’t knock you out in the afternoon.)

- 1 oz fino sherry
- .75 oz Cappelletti Aperitivo
