Hang Glider

First there was the cocktail known as "The Last Word."  A riff on that recipe created the "Paper Plane."  A third iteration -- that substitutes gin for bourbon -- is a light and delicious summer refresher named the "Hang Glider."

Personally, I can't see how the nuanced, herbaceous Amaro Nanino and citrus-forward Aperol apertif could stand up to bourbon; so, I appreciate this well-balanced gin-forward option that makes use of sturdy London-Dry style gin, instead.



Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin, and shake over ice.  Double strain into a chilled coupe glass, and garnish with an expressed lemon peel.
