Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The Garibaldi cocktail, with its harmonious infusion of Aperol and freshly squeezed orange juice, brightens the palate with a delightful interplay between the bittersweet complexities of the Aperol and the citrus burst from the orange. The subtle inclusion of sugar syrup in this mix adds just the right touch of sweetness, enhancing the depth of the Aperol while preserving the fresh zestiness of the orange—making it a perfectly balanced drink for those who appreciate a bright, refreshing cocktail with a sophisticated twist.

Method
How to make a Garibaldi

Serves 1 · Takes 3 minutes
First, squeeze orange juice using a pillar or elbow press, then fine strain it to eliminate any pulp, ensuring a smooth texture
Next, blend the freshly squeezed juice at high speed (without ice) until it achieves a "fluffy" consistency, creating a light and airy texture
After that, add bitter liqueur, sugar syrup, and half of the orange juice into a glass containing two ice cubes, then stir well to combine the flavors evenly
Proceed by adding three more cubes of ice to the glass to chill it further without diluting the drink too quickly
Finally, gently top off the glass with the remaining fluffy orange juice, creating a visually appealing layer

CUSTOMIZATION_IDEAS

How can I adjust the sweetness or bitterness of the Garibaldi?

To adjust the sweetness, you can vary the amount of sugar syrup according to your taste. For a sweeter drink, increase the sugar syrup slightly. To enhance bitterness and complexity, consider adding a bit more Aperol. Taste testing as you adjust is key to finding your perfect balance.
