Eden Terrace Fizz

Designed to highlight the flavors of Appletons Rum.
1 12 oz English-style rum, Appleton V/X
12 oz Aperol
12 oz Sloe gin, Bitter Truth
1 oz Lemon juice
12 oz Simple syrup (1:1)
1 oz Soda water (to top)
Instructions
Shake all ingredients except soda water in a cocktail shaker, double strain into a highball over ice and top with soda. Garnish with an orange twist.
Notes
Use a lighter style Sloe Gin, Haymans being too heavy.
History
First made for a female customer that wanted something 'fruity' and refreshing, I was going to use white rum but the house pour ran out and I was too lazy to go get a new bottle, so I reached for Appletons. Tweaked for an Appletons competition with Appletons Rum being the dominant flavor and easily accessible ingredients in mind.
