Aperol & Grapefruit

Aperol & Grapefruit Cocktail


 ‘Hoping for the best’


‘Hoping for the best’ is the name we gave this cocktail. Why? Because it was visual narrative project examining topic of raw refinement and modern luxuries before I decided to combine our subjects forcing them to become our refreshing beverages.

Since the sparkling water was absent so used what was present in the store cupboard, to our delight it was a bottle of elderflower pressé. So here is the recipe for you to enjoy… P.s please drink responsibly.
