Prickly Pear Cooler
This is the first "Audition" for baby shower drinks that I can put in a punchbowl/pitcher. The original recipe we saw used blood orange bitters. They stole the recipe from someone that used St Germain, so we tried both. Aperol was the closest thing I had to blood orange bitters and it was definitely the favorite of the official tasting commitee.
8 oz Vinho Verde (a slightly fizzy white wine)
3/4 oz Prickly Pear Syrup
1/2 oz Aperol or St Germain
