Sunny Day Real Estate Cocktail
The Los Angeles mixologist Alex Day is a fan of the band Sunny Day Real Estate and named this summery drink after them. The cocktail combines the classic aperitifs vermouth and Aperol with a bright raspberry syrup for a balanced (and gorgeously pink-colored) cooler.

Step 1Combine the vermouth, raspberry syrup, Aperol and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a Collins glass filled with ice, and top with soda water. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
