Looking for a beautiful winter cocktail to wow your party guests? Look no further than the Before & After cocktail.

The secret? Aperol, a kid sister to Campari, gives this crowd-pleasing winter libation a pleasant sweet-and-bitter taste profile. This cocktail's creator, Girl & the Goat house mixologist Ben Schiller, likes to serve it as an aperitif or a digestif, hence the moniker.
