This week, cocktail maestro Norm Owen takes us through the world of that pre-dinner drink known as the Apéritif. What’s it for, what drinks qualify as apéritifs, and – of course – a recipe for an aperitif cocktail!

Examples of drinks you might drink before dinner: Dubonnet, Lillet blanc, vermouth, Cointreau, champagne & prosecco. But truly, there are no rules!

Aperitif cocktails….

.25 oz Maraschino liqueur

Stir on ice, strain into a coupe, and serve with a lemon twist!
