Begin with 1½ ounces of Avión Reposado. The tequila’s full flavored sweetness will balance out the bitterness of a traditional apertif.
Add ¾ ounce each of Aperol and Carpano Antica, and stir. In the absence of juice or other mixers, your cocktail should be stirred to maintain the integrity of the spirits.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a thick cut orange twist. Squeeze the twist over the drink to release the oils and then drop it right in the cocktail.
