Angel’s Kiss

Will Noland, at the Sidecar in Brooklyn, has created an even better version of the drink, the Angel’s Kiss. He underscores the appealing bitterness of the Aperol with a hint of smokiness from Mezcal.


1.5 oz Aperol

.5 oz Mezcal (something young,”joven”, not too smoky)

3 oz Prosecco

1.5 oz soda


Fill a large wineglass about three-quarters full with ice, add the ingredients, stir and garnish with a lemon or orange twist. My brother loves this drink but found it too complicated to make the Kiss one at a time at a party. He chilled all the components, mixed up a pitcher, and served the drink in champagne flutes. That worked.
