Imperial Cocktail

Although I have seen a few cocktails bearing the name “Imperial Cocktail”, this is a variation I find that is a good mix of sour and refreshing.  Although this is essentially a gimlet with the addition of Aperol, I would recommend against using all Rose’s lime juice as it adds a bit too much sugar.
