lido shuffle

1 oz Cocchi Americano
1/2 oz Aperol
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a Highball glass filled with fresh ice. Top with ~2 oz soda. Garnish with an orange twist and add a straw.

Two Sundays ago, Andrea and I paid a visit to Brick and Mortar where we found seats in front of bartender Misty Kalkofen. For my first libation, I asked Misty for the Lido Shuffle from the tall drinks section of the menu. The recipe for the Lido Shuffle was created by Evan Harrison when he wanted to develop a lower in alcohol option while working at Deep Ellum. Once the recipe reached the Brick and Mortar menu, it was renamed by owner Patrick Sullivan not for the stumbling walk of patrons leaving Club Lido in Revere, but for Boz Scaggs song from the 1970s.
The Lido Shuffle's orange twist contributed greatly to the drink's aroma. The crisp, carbonated citrus sip led into an Aperol swallow that was affected by the lemon and Yellow Chartreuse. Interestingly, the flavor combination came across as an herbal orange flavor.
