Paper Plane Cocktail Recipe

I recently enjoyed a round of Paper Plane cocktails with friends at Les Faux Bourgeois Bistro restaurant in Vancouver, BC. This refreshing cocktail combines bourbon, Aperol, amaro, and lemon juice in equal parts.

Winner of the 2021 Golden Plates award for Best Bistro by the Georgia Straight, Les Faux Bourgeois offers authentic French Bisto menu items like steak frites, coq au vin, and cassoulet. A full bar menu is also available that includes classic cocktails, beer, and wine.


1½ oz amaro
1½ oz Aperol
1½ oz bourbon
1½ oz fresh lemon juice


Shake all ingredients with ice, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
