A cappuccino and a biscotti will warm the walkers and wake the sleepers.IMG_20160131_152222

As dusk falls a classic aperitivo stimulates the appetite for the Valentine’s Day dinner ahead. 

Mix up a bitter-sweet Pamplemousse Aperol Cocktail:

1 oz. Aperol (or more)
4 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, pulp strained out and discarded
4 oz. dry white wine or sparkling wine

Fill a tall glass about halfway with ice cubes. Add the Aperol, juice, and wine, and stir to blend. Strain into a Champagne coupe or a martini glass. Yield: 2 drinks; Adapted from Orangette
